wish me luck on smoking them one is 38.4lb the other 35.8lb. going to have to splatchcock them for sure.
Pay attention to the danger zone time frames. Basically, you want to keep the time the bird is between 40 and 140 to less than 4 hours. the larger the bird the more difficult this is. Good luck and I am sure these will be better than the ones bought in the store.
I will probably will smoke them at 300-325 degrees.
Here a picture done at 8:30am. I should have taken a picture of the other half it looked better. They are wrapped in foil and are in the chest for lunch. oh, i smoked at 280 till. The last 30min i took the water pan out and took it up to 350.
