    Question, noticed that the temp was at 225F. How did the skin taste...rubbery? Everyone that I have smoked at below 300F turned out rubber skin but tasty meat.

    This breast was missing part of the skin to begin with so it was not really a good specimen for crispy skin. I do plan to try that next time.

    Ahh, skin is not good for you any way. Great job on the breast.
    Photos are alittle big, check out the OPTIONS setting in Photobucket next to where you upload and select one size smaller. Maybe 800 x 600 or 640 x 480. That way we won't have to scroll right to read the text or see all the photo. [​IMG]
     
  10. Nice pictures~

    And I agree, 800x600 resolution should be good. The pictures now are suitable for users with 1280x1024 and up resolution.
