Hey All, Today i got a bug to smoke some meat up. i decided to buy a whole chicken and give it a go. ive never don a chicken before but what the heck right? gotta start sometime. because it was on a whim i didnt brine my chicken but instead just threw a dry rub on it and let that set in for a little while then i stuck a second coat of rub on the skin and threw it in the smoker. the rub i hope will be good cuz i kind of just threw it together. here are its ingredients, Paprika, black pepper, celery salt, sugar, onion powder, mustard, cayenne pepper, a pinch of salt, and some lemon zest. i cant remember if i heard these ingredients from somewhere or not but for some reason this is what was stuck in my head to put on a chicken. i tasted it and it was delicious so i threw it on the chicken. then i got some octoberfest beer and put it in a can and along with a lemoni shoved it into the rear end of the chicken. now its sittin in the smoker that has cherry wood in it for the smoke. wish me luck on taste. hehe. Here is a pic of the 6.5 pound chicken Here is one of chicken with rub on beer can stand and the most recent is the smokey goodness we all know and love. i hope this turns out good.
