    Well the wife brought me home some half birds[​IMG]   so out the door i went to get the smoker fired up.

    getting the pit fired up


    chicken coming out of its nice bath of marinade soaked overnight.



    getting ready for my rub but first a light coat of cooking oil helps to crisp and brown the skin.[​IMG]

    all rubbed up and ready for the smoker.


    on the smoker it goes and time for a cold beer.[​IMG]

    here is a look 1 1/2 hours into  cook.. mmmmmmmmmm looking good [​IMG]

    ok breast hit right around 168 so time to pull them off and let rest for a few in the cooler. this will be a good time for another beer[​IMG]

    the chicken was great and the wife loved it to so that was a plus. I am such a big fan of brine and marinade its like night and day.

    thanks for looking.
  2. Chicken looks good...I love to smoke chicken, it's quick and simple. A little salt, pepper and smoke then you have a meal.
  3. What was the time and temp that you cooked them? Also, how did the skin turn out?

    When i do chicken i smoke a bit hotter right around 250-270 this will help to crisp the skin also. i smoked them about 3 hours i cook more to temp so don't really keep track off time i pulled these off the smoker when they hit 168 degrees.  the skin turned out great it was not as crisp like i get most the time but it was real tasty.
  5. looks fantastic!

    that skin looks pretty tasty to me!
