    Good luck with your first chicken.
    Brine it in anything special? I mean, all brines are special things but you know what I mean.

    salt, brown sugar, cayenne pepper, tony chachere's, thyme, cumin, black pepper and some worsterchire sauce.........

    What kind of wood are ya using to kiss those meats? Looks like a good chicken smoke is about to be had. Nice job so far!
     
  10. The fatty is made with Johnsonville Hot and Spicy Bratwurst with sauteed mushrooms and Kroger Mexican Cheese mix. I used some apple to 'Kiss' em with.

    Here they are just before I took them off the ECB:

    Here they are just before we commenced to eatin' em(That is the reason why I'm just now posting the pics) They were done at 5:10pm. I started em at 225, then an hour and a half into it I boosted it up to 300. The last hour was at 350.

    Looks great. How did the skin come out on the bird? I bet boosting it to 350 really helped.

    Nice lookin' bird.
     
  20. Boosting the temperature made all the difference with the skin. MMMMMmmmmm. Nice and crispy. Honestly, I don't think I've had a better bird!!
