Tonights Chickens w/Q-view

  1. Well after a stormy rainy start I was able to finally put on a couple of chickens I had the butcher split. Used a rub, Basted with olive oil every hour for 2 1/2 hrs. between 275 - 290 degrees over hickory. Pulled them just a little while ago.

    They look perfect to me.  How were they?  How was the skin?  Tell us a little about the process.  Brine or no?  Rub?  c'mon don't make us beg

    hmmmm.... good! Love me some smoked bird!!!   Well done!
  5. Sorry I didn't reply sooner. I used a commercial rub since I didn't have but two birds. I used hickory wood for the smoke, but next time I want to try some apple wood I have had seasoning for about a year. I smoked them at between 275 - 290 for around 2 1/2 hours, and basted them on the hour with olive oil. Next time I'm going to use just a little less smoke. Thanks for the compliments. Oh I forgot the skin crisped up perfect even had some grill marks for an added bonus.

    The butcher split them? I usually do that myself but maybe I can talk the butcher into that service from now on.
  11. Just got back from beach camping. As far as the butcher splitting them, yes all I have to do is ask. A friend of mine was a meat cutter for ten years, and tells me they will even ground meat if you ask them. Haven't tried that one yet.
