    I got out of work a lil early and decided to fire up my CCSV. Im about 90 mins in and the IT is at 118 as we speak. The bird is just under 5#, so it shouldnt take that long. Oh yeah.....also doin some ABTs as well :-) QVIEW to follow. Stay tuned...

    What temp are you smoking at? I like to smoke chicken at 275 it helps crisp the skin up.

    I have it running at around 250. The IT seems to be slowly climbing to the finish line at 170.
