I know it's kind of late to ask, but I have a 11lb bird gonna start it bout 3am. That's about 7 hours from now.
Does anyone have a link or suggestion of a rub, I'm gonna place butter under the skin.
No injection or brine.
I was gonna fill the cavity with a few Lemon, Limes, Oranges, and apples ??? Does this sound ok, as I've seen some posts on here about leaving the cavity empty when I smoke it??
Temp. Suggestions. I've read 30 min per pound of bird or so. Bring Breast to 165 and thigh to 175 ??
Any last minute ideas would be great, especially for the a rub or something ??
