    Didn't get a real good smoke ring, not sure why - but it had a real good smoke flavor.[​IMG][​IMG]
     
  2. Your bird looks delicious my friend.  Did you brine it? What wood did you use to smoke?

    Chicken really smokes to quick to develope a good smook ring. As long as it is moist and taste good.....you did great.

    No brine, just rubbed it with olive oil and then dry rub. I used some hickory chunks this time.

    Great looking chicken. Like Flash said before chicken does not seem to develop a ring  
     
  10. That looks really good, but don'ttake any chances. Package that bird up and ship it to me for proper disposal.

    Happy smoking,

  11. Yep, at the most you will see a slight hue. The smoke flavor comes through though.

     You really don't need to brine chicken. I never do. But alot do it. Just a personal thing I guess.
