Looks good, beautiful color!
What kind of wood did you use...
any cherry in the mix? Color looks like it could have cherry but I could be wrong.

I smoked it with hickory. Not too shabby, but next time I will brine and spend more time with it. The breasts are not as moist as I had hoped for but I did over cook it a bit. Went to 175 in the breast. icon_redface.gif

The dark meat is super yummy however.

I can't wait for my next smoke.

I find brining it makes all the difference in the world and can impart some nice flavors as well

Nice bird. I will say that brining does smake a huge difference. Give it a try and you will never go with out it again. My family wants me to brine the bird even if it goes in an oven.
