    Chicken in Brine Solution ----  1 cup (loose) brown sugar 1/4 cup salt and about 1/8 cup of Tony's mix well with enough water to cover chicken.

    Chicken Rensed

    A little EVOO salt and pepper and my rub

    Everything is on, time to coast a little

  7. I started out with a little charcoal and about and about 3/4 of a chimney to get started no more charcoal all pecan today, just added another split. Be wrapping ribs about 2:00 pm

    What a feast Gary! Those beans look incredible!

    What do you mean by wrapping the chicken?
  12. Gary, I can't help but have a smile on my face everytime I see one of your smokes. Everything looks great. I guess that's what 40 of experience looks like!!! :77:
  13. I wrapped it in foil just for a bit and put back on the smoker  ( really holds in the juices), I'll unwrap it and finish it on the smoker. Beans were on the smoker for about 4 hours, wife said the smoke was just right so I pulled them. Using seasoned pecan all day actually not much a little charcoal to get things started then a large split and 2 more splits been holding all day at 225

    I wasn't hungry until I saw this thread. We should have some kind of warning for posts like this: WARNING! Q-VIEW HAS BEEN KNOWN TO CAUSE HUNGER PANGS. VIEW AT YOUR OWN RISK!

    Cool, and at what IT do you wrap it? Do you add anything in the foil?
  16. Something I found with poultry it absorbs a lot of smoke. I (we like a mild smoke flavor) even though my pecan is well seasoned and have had TBS all day I still don't want to over smoke. another reason for wrapping the bird . I'll go put another split on and in a little bit when I am just getting heat out of the stack (no smoke at all) I'll unwrap and finish up.

    I would think he means wrap his teeth around it.[​IMG] OMG that looks good.

  18. I did, I added the same as I did the ribs, Squeeze margarine , honey, Tony's and apple cider.

    Sorry I didn't check the temp. I really need to do that for my post, Like ribs, brisket, and all the other stuff, I have smoked so much I usually go by looks and feel. Now I always check the temps on poultry and butts toward the end just to be safe and make sure the shoulders are pull-able When I un- wrap I'll check the temp.

  19. Nice!!! Like it!!!
  20. 3:50 PM un-foiled the ribs and chicken back on the smoker, took up the Links  Ribs pulling back from the bone bend test almost ready. Chicken's temp was 172 º  pot it back on the smoker for just a bit too Only heat coming from the stack. 

    Finishing up on the smoker   ------  Won't be long now !!!
