1st smoke on restore.....

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
well i broke in the new (to me) smoker with chicken in honor of the previous owner (tragic story). i brined some thighs in salt and my rub, then lightly coated them with olive oil and rub.....


tossed some beans on the side box........

chicken is done and ribs are foiled.............


all in all i liked the food off this smoker and it wasn't all that hard to maintain the heat. i think i will need some type of tuning plates to even out the heat.

That looks like it turned out great. Did you use lump or regular hardwood?

I don't know why or what the whole story behind the chicken is but the birds looks good too. So I guess the smoker will work for now.

i used "ono" lump to get it started and then used pecan to maintain the heat.

the previous owner was a victim of road rage who loved to smoke. his widow is moving back to where she was from and his best friend is who sold me the smoker. i told him that i was a chef and i recenty got into smoking, he said he was glad that it was going to someone who liked to smoke. i asked him what was his friend's favorite thing to do on this smoker was and he said chicken......i told him that would be my first smoke.
