Sounds delicious! I love using pecan for poultry and pork. I did a turkey breast for Thanksgiving with Cajun butter injection and pecan smoke. My crew destroyed it!

If I may ask, what's " Montreal Chicken" ?

Montreal Chicken is a seasoning made by McCormick Company. You can usually find it in the food store, I get mine from Sams Club. I didn't mention in my post that I put the Montreal Chicken in my coffee grinder. Reducing it to a finer grain makes application easier.

Wow! cool Thx! Coffee grinder sounds like a good idea. I may need to try something different like the Montreal rub. I always use Tony Chachere's Creole seasoning http://www.tonychachere.com  on my yard birds, big and small

That turkey looks amazing! I need to build me an UDS
