I haven't smoked too much lately with the florida and back travel and putting the new house sale under control.

Went to H-mart and bought lots of meat today. And a bag of soy flour/protein.

They also had the huge jalapenos.

Chicken has a generic OTC rub. A gift, basically SPOG and bayleaf grind. Put a couple slices of bacon on the back.

Here we are at 150.

Good looking bird.  Is there a reason you cook it breast down?  I always do mine breast up, but i don't have a particular reason for doing it that way.

No reason for upside down..

Turns out the thing is way juicy but nasty tasting and hard as a rock.

Out at 170..must have been a bad bird.

Threw it out in the back, the opossums and raccoons will fight over it.

One of the rare time when a guy can't eat  what he smokes. Was the bird not fresh or just a tough old girl? Better luck next time Craig.
