Had some family over today and threw in a 7-pound chicken, no brine and a nice rub (plus butter on the breasts) over some Apple wood.
For a first run, it turned out great.
I've read some of the minor mods done to this smoker and plan to put a gasket on the doors and go the disposable drip pan route.
After spending an hour or so on here last night and some time this morning, I have a million and one ideas for what's going to be a lot of dinners in the near future.
Here's to hoping my wife doesn't get tired of smoked "everything" for dinner.
