    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.

  2. 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.

    Sorry it didn't come out good, Craig. It sure looked good at the start!
  12. 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.
