yup.....frozen and on sale for $2.50 @ fry's

gary, they take about 2 hrs....that's why i do them!

this time pecan....i usually use cherry/apple mix. i thought they came out good.

oh yea........

tader.....what you see is pretty much it. i did brine them in salt and my rub for 2 hrs. after a quick rinse i then hit them with olive oil and more rub. put them in the gasser/charcoal vertical over pecan for 1.5 hrs.

wait and see what i did with the left overs............
