    Has anybody ever done these before? I put them on about 1:00 EST
    I opened it up 40 minutes ago to turn them..

    I just opened it again to mop them with some Wishbone Italian dressing and put a fork thermometer in and it said it was 175. Are they done already?

    I have the temp pretty regulated at 225-250. I expected to eat around 5 or 6. I'm not even hungry yet.

    yeah.......they don't take long.......wrap in foil..........couple towels and then into a cooler.........also.....make sure where you checked the temps, you didn't get TOO close to the bone......that will give you a false reading

    Thanks Walking Dude. You are the man.

    I'm gonna double check the temp in the biggest one.

    I'll post some q-view of the finished product later.

    The wife will be happy if they are done early.. I was trying to get out of laying some carpet in the basement today.

    Maybe I was too close to the bone the first time.

    I checked a couple and I'm getting 135-150

    Looks like the carpeting is gonna wait after all.

    What a hit these bad boys were.

    One daughter was really mad when she found out I was smoking today and she won't be here..

    The other daughter had a friend come for dinner who was very happy she was able to come.. so I guess it worked out.

    When I cook Turkey or Chicken legs they turn out very rubbery. Not just the skin but the meat too. Can anyone tell me why? Thanks.

    The skin was a little rubbery on these.. but the meat was perfect.
