Only way you will ever understand how good this is , is to try it . Fantastic .
Injected and in bag 24 hours , then dry in fridge 24 hours . 48 hours cure time will give it a hammy flavor .
Ready for smoker .

The skin was actually good when it came out of the smoker . After resting over night I had to toss it .
Have a roll of paper towels close by , you're gonna need them .

I did one a while back. Only injected the thickest parts a little.. and then put it in wet cure brine for about 16 ,hours. It was very very juicy..

Cool looking bird in a net.. Lol nice!

Beautiful bird chop! I bet that would be great skinless too.

where do you get those nets. I like that, have a problem with my birds falling apart before I'm ready.

Thats a good looking chicken. What did it weigh in at? And what size netting did you use? I plan to order some but "I know nothing" about netting.

Gary , that chicken was 8lbs. I used size 28 . It says 8" diameter but it will stretch more than that . I used it on the picnic ham I did . Stretched it over a 10 1/2 " pot . Picnic was 12lbs .
