Well, did our second run today and it was better than the first!
We brined the chicken for 2 hours using 2 quarts of water, 1/4 cup Salt and 1/4 cup of brown sugar...
We used the following recipe for the Rub minus the salt and Thyme..
8 Tbl spooons Dark brown sugar
1 Tbl spoon chili powder
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp of onion powder
Got this recipe online.. Actually we were in the store looking for a new rub when my son said "lets
mix our own" so he went online and got this one.
We also bought a new bag of wood chips!
Stubbs 100% All Natural Bar-B-Q which is a blend of Oak, Applewood and Hickory.
Bought some Jack Daniels Honey Smokehouse Barbecue Sauce too! We added that to only three
pieces toward the end of the cook. This way we can taste the difference with and without the Sauce!
We had such a fun time today me and him! LOL We stayed outside near the smoker talking (Smoke) and
learned a lot more about the smoker...
Wasn't to sure of this Walmart Taylor electric Thermometer so going to get a Maverick. haha
Aren't there two versions of the Mav?
