Nice chicken David. I may have to give that a whirl. What kind of smoker is that?

Thanks Brian for the like and the comment

It really was 1 of the best chickens I have ever had,
Yes your turn to give it a whirl :emoji_cloud_tornado::emoji_cloud_tornado:

The smoker is a Masterchef Duel Fuel Adventure series ( propane and/or charcoal )

Outstanding!

This is pretty much how I do whole birds too. But instead of apple juice I use the Ocean Spray Cranberry/BlackBerry 100%.

This will happen again, the ocean spray sounds good also.
How much of it do you use in the brine

Last time she was here she sat at the table and said she was hungry, so Mona would get up and make her a sandwich to her liking.
After a couple days of this I had to take her by the hand and up to the countertop show her how to butter her bread and make her own sandwich. And I said this is not a restaurant.
Well the house was quite for a few days . not a word from Mona or her sister . But lots of ugly looks.

We will see how this couple weeks go . lol

Sounds mean but she makes her little sister feel like she has to wait on her .:emoji_anguished:

Great color on that bird David! How was the skin? I really need to work on my knife work cutting up a bird, mine looks like it was shredded when I am done.

Chicken was real good , Skin was very good. If you take a bite on the leg you can bite through the skin. Not rubbery at all. But with the chicken so juicy the skin slides off easy.

Sometimes I get a little knife silly also, most times I slice ok
