    Snug as bug in a rug....


    This was a pic the other night when it was pretty cold outside cooking a fatty bird @ 350 but tonight it's about 10 wind chill and the mini  is out there with it's  insulation jacket and it thinks it's summer time....at least behaves like it.... rock solid temps and goes through pennies in fuel.     No tera pot or anyting...just the steamer tray that comes with the tamale pot is in it.

    Very nice color on the chicken and the skin looks great too. I have never been able to master the chicken. To me chicken is the hardest to cook consistently.

    Thanks!! I think that spatching is one of the best methods for getting a good consistent cook on a chicken. Keeping the rub and overall process simple is another trick I like to use. Then there's the temp, high temp really helps. You still get great smokey flavor, moist meat and crisp skin. Of course having a great little smoker that holds temps right where they need to be also helps. The mini-wsm is on heck of a great smoker!
