    I know most of you are snowed in today so I am braving the 37 degree temps and 14mph winds just for you.

    A turkey and 2 chickens in the baby lang.  I'll update when I get a bit of color going,

    The wind was blowing and the temps got a bit high, 300 degrees, even with all firebox dampers closed but hey it's poultry so 300 is ok with me.  Running around 250 now.

    2 and a half hours into it the Turkey is at 144 and the chicks are at 156.  Going to let the temp go up a bit, it's 36 degrees outside and getting ready to rain, need to finish this up.

    Food that hits the floor there doesn't have a chance with the 5 second rule.

       Have a great day

    Pulled the turkey at 155 because it is starting to sleet and the temps are dropping.  Will finish in the oven

    Still a bit red at the bone so into a 350 oven until it comes up to 165

    Man that's some good looking stuff!  Thanks for posting and yes I'm envious!  I have a path dug through the snow/ice to the smoker outside (same one the dog uses...) but haven't used it in a month or so...  Yeah I'm a wuss!

    I like the pictures of your dog too!
