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, 

Al

An hour and 45 minutes later



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.



BooBoo, protector of the pit says it's getting close

Looking good Al!!

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



Chickens are done, gonna wrap with a couple of towels and let rest until wifey comes home



Smoked poultry, a big bowl of vegetable soup and some iced green tea for dinner! 

 Thanks for looking,

Al

They look very good.  I save all the bones and scraps from mone and use to make chicken stock.

You are braver than me I am actually thinking of changing my planned weekend smoke to a Chili cook so I can stay indoors.

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!
