My First Smoke!!!

  1. Got the smoker set up and seasoned then yesterday I did my first smoke. I did 2 whole chickens. I soaked them in brine with salt, sugar, and apple juice for 8 hours. I then rubbed chickens with honey mustard then a rub from a friend. Built fire in side box and leveled off temps to 250 degrees. Put onion in necks of chickens and used apple juice in the cans instead of beer. Cooked till temps in breast were at 175. Took about 2 1/2 hours. I also had 3 turkey legs on the grill. We ate till we almost burst. My sister said it was the best chicken she had ever had.

    Sounds like a feast to me. I'll have to try your method.
