I thought it looked great! You nailed your first bird. My first one looked like it ahead been involved in a forest fire.
Trust me, looks can be deceiving! I be seen a LOT of things look real pretty, but made the dog turn up his nose! I made a few of them!
Like my pappy told me when he was teaching me how to work with metal (black smithing), "get the basics down, then learn to make it look sexy". I still can't make a forge weld like he did, but my fire tongs are sexy!
Same with this hobby (madness). Figure out the sweet spots on/in the pit, learn how different meats cook, experiment with different flavor profiles of woods, etc... Then, start playing with the presentation. It'll be a lot easier that way.
