I was a little nervous attempting this for the first time on the holiday. I'd heard the mini does well in winter, but this was my first try. I broke out the larger fan for the BBQ Guru, and it held temp like a champ.

Occasionally got some TWS rather than TBS, but the chicken didn't seem to suffer for it. Smoke was pecan and peach, and I ran the mini at 300 for an hour.

The chicken tenders were dusted with Jeff's rub, and wrapped with bacon. 

The scarbelly wings are just so, so good, I could eat a whole plate of just those.

Anyway, hope everyone has a great holiday! I'm looking forward to seeing all the great holiday smokes! is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
