    So I broke in my new smoker today and had my first smoke, chicken thighs. Yesterday, I rubbed them with a bunch of seasonings (paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, s & p, weber kick'n chicken)...

    I used my new Brinkmann Vertical Charcoal Smoker

    I used applewood to smoke, and apple juice and water in the water pan. My smoker gage said it was in the "ideal" range and when I took the temp, it said about 300 degrees. I put the thighs on at 1:10pm. At 2:30pm I checked them, and the internal temp read 178 degrees...they were DONE!

    I smoked a beer can chicken in my Camp Chef Smoke Vault tonight for the first time.
