    With all this time on my hands I thought I would try a Sweet & Sour bird.

    This is one of my favorite ways to do a bird, they always come out tender and juicy


    I started with a 4½ lb er


    Rubbed with a new rub,

    Good flavor, a little on the sweet side.


    Rubbed and ready


    Smoked with RO lump and pecan at around 235º- 250º range.


    I glazed with La-Choy Sweet&Sour sauce twice during the last hr of the smoke. 


    It made a great glaze and helped to hold in all those good flavors.


    A shot of the thigh meat


    I also smoked some yellow onions with butter, minced garlic and beef bouillon.

    A fellow member posted these last week and I had to give them a try. They are Awesome!

    I'm still trying to find their post to give them credit for such a great onion.(anyone remember them?)


    Ain't she a beaut?

    I forgot to mention, I loosely foiled them for the first 1½. Then unfoiled the last hour.

                         This is a first..........(Onion Bear View) [​IMG]

    It was darn tasty.

    I haven't found a better way to get a breast as tender and juicy as the spatchcock method.

    But I'm still trying[​IMG]


    Thanks for checking out my Qview

    And Thanks for letting me be part of such a great family [​IMG]

    Nice bird rap......  The Onion is a meal in itself for me...........................................[​IMG]   Was this smoked on your char-broil offset... By looking at your smoker it looks like its well seasoned or as craig would say.

    Super seasoned.......[​IMG]

    Looks fantastic, I was going to do the same thing with the onions this weekend, didn't even think about adding garlic, so I'll definitely give that a shot too. The bird looks amazing as well, definitely going to have to try the spatchcock method.
