First Smoke

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Well I finally fired up and smoked this weekend. First shot was something simple. I went with a couple chickens. I used Jeff's brine recipe and a rub from my local fireplace and grilling store. A Jamaican blend, sweet and spicy both. Had some neighbors over and they went nuts for it. My son had one of his friends over and he said his Dad is a Chef and his smoked chicken was never as good as mine :) that made me smile. I got a beginning picture and one from about a hour into it but by the time it was done there was not time to gets pics of the finished product. I had people harassing me to get it sliced and on the table to feed them.

You have gone and done it now! Stumbled into a whole nest of grazed smokers. Next thing you know you will be getting funny looks from your family while you snap pics of the excellent Q you just smoked.

Sounds like your first Q was Q licious !

How to post Qview to Forum:

When you uploading to Photobucket I always use the Large IMG setting, 640 x 480 it is a nice size...

Everyone here enjoys seeing the Qview so be sure to post plenty of pics...

Large ones that us old people with bad eyes can see.
