First Chickens W/Qview

Discussion in 'Poultry' started by tbakko, Dec 5, 2010.

  1. I decided to smoke a couple of whole chickens & some brussel sprouts for my wife for her birthday. I used Tip's brine & basted with a rasberry, honey & apple cider mix. The brussel sprouts were parboiled then put in open foil with butter & Paula Deans house seasoning. I left the sprouts open for an hour then wrapped tight in foil & left for 45 more minutes. The chicken & sprouts came out gerat, very few leftoves. Sorry, no money shot but they were nice & moist and very good, my son said the skin was like eating candy [​IMG]

    Tbak, those birds have a nice color and I bet they were tasty. Sometimes it is hard to get a money shot, but we like money shots.

    Nice job!  Whole birds are so easy and so amazingly great!  I like the brussel sprouts idea, too!

    Now the birds look awesome and I would really like to see the sprouts I love those things. Maybe fried up with some bacon and the bacon grease too.

    Man those birds turned out great. You can keep the brussel sprouts to yourself - I cant stand the dang things

    Your son is right on the money with the skin
