    Well folks it has been just over a year since I started me new job.  The good thing is I love it and it is much better money than teaching.  The downside it I don't have near as much time for cooking but today we are making some time.  I am going to walk through this one as the day goes by with the finally right before the fireworks. 

    Boneless Chicken Thighs Brining in Apple Juice and spices..


    Making some Slaw...Ma and I like it vinegar like so we just take every ones favorite pulled pork finishing sauce add some dark brown sugar and 1/3 cup of apple juice as our slaw mix.


    Gonna get the UDS up and smoking with some Kingsford blue and some Mesquite see y'all in a few hours for the updates.

    The UDS is purring like a kitten the smoke is thin and blue and the Chicken Thighs are getting kissed with the good stuff.


    I am using a new rub I was given to test out from a friend of mine.  It is called Pap and Elmer's bird Blend at first taste it is a little salty we will see how it finishes up in the end. 


    Gonna sit on the smoke for about an hour and a half before i move it to some foil.

    Not really I like Mojo but never did it on chicken.  That is more of a Cuban thing now i do like to bast with some Italian dressing.
