Whole Chicken, Brined and Injected....Qview

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Got a 5 lb bird last night for dinner tonight. Soaked it in a simply poultry brine over night, then gave it the "Mark McGuire" and injected it with Tony Chachers Butter Creole injection, then smoke it for 4 hours till 170* with hickory wood. Used my Char Broil propane smoker. I had some trouble with temps today, i dont know why, i used it last weekend without a problem, but today i just couldnt seem to get the temp up above 230 unless i let the water pan run dry and cranked the knob on the front of the smoker. I was able to play around with it didnt hurt anything, it was just annoying. Would a almost empty tank keep the burner from burning correctly or to it full potential? Cause i know i have 10+ hours on this grill tank. Just curious.

 

Anyway here is the Qview.

 

In the brine

that looked great, I bet it tasted even better.  We just finished up all the chicken from the freezer, So I am betting when I get back from my trio this week there will be a bird or two to smoke

That looks outstanding!!! What kind of LP tank are you using I get about 40 hours out of a 20 lb cylinder with my GOSM
