Looks great, I'm trying to figure out if that's a lime half or a lemon half with a tan.

Is this your very first? Looks great either way, beautimous color,  What was your brine? And what wood did you smoke with? And most imortantly, got a sliced pic?

That is an orange in the bird with the tan.  The brine is one I "borrowed" from someone on here.  It was;

1cup Kosher salt

1 cup Brown sugar

1 tbs rosemary

1 tbs thyme

4 pressed garlic cloves

2 bay leaves

2 medium oranges sliced

smoked it with lump charcoal and apple chips for about 5 1/2 hours.  put the ABTs on during the last 2 hours.   

That is the first thing I have ever attempted to smoke,  my wife seemed to enjoy it, as did the neighbors.  Looking forward to some leftover sandwiches today, and to doing more in the future.

Wow.  That is a nice looking bird.  And if I am not mistaken, I believe that is Mac & Cheese under the foil?
