    I've smoked a few chickens this way.  Third time using the ring though to keep the charcoal around the outside. (Brilliant!) I've taken a good deal from SMF so its time to give back.  my first QView.  Its still on, but i took this while i was pulling the sweaty dogs off for a snack.

    Its been on for about 3 1/2 hours, time to check the temp and pull it out.

    what temp do you guys take it out at?

    Ignore that missing wing [​IMG]   I always get to excited and start eating, hence the first Q view. had to wash my hands and take a picture.  excellent so far, the fat is very gelatinous, and the meat is falling off the bone.  my roommate from china said it was some of the best chicken he's even had, maybe I'll convert him to a smoker [​IMG] and he can start a trend in china

    LOL, if you're implying that it was gas, it most definitely was not!  It was my stomach saying "Dang!  I want me some smoked chicken right now!  The hell's your problem? Loser."

    I love my stomach, but it can be rude sometimes.  [​IMG]

    No, that was an older thread, Mark.  Planning some for this weekend, though.

    That was a smart move---clipping a wing, so she doesn't get away!

    Bet it was great!

    @mballi3011 I used hickory, so far its my favorite, i had a few bradford pear logs outside my apartment, but they mysteriously disappeared [​IMG] so I won't be able to try that any time soon.

    @Bearcarver, It was delicious, I'm starting to think smoked wings are way better than fried wings.  meat falling off the bone and no need for sauce mmm mmm MMMMMM
