    5 Yardbirds @ $0.64/lbs on the Drum


    In an effort to eat a little healthier, and save a couple bucks, I thought I’d cook up a couple birds to shred and food save for some meals over the next couple weeks.

    To my surprise, Frys had a sale goin on for Foster Farms chix. Advertised @ $0.67/lbs. I went to buy a few, and the people there had crossed out $0.67 and wrote in $0.64/lbs (I guess they were in a bidding war w/ Albertsons).

    It was limit 2, but i picked up 3, and my wife picked up 2 with her card.

    Here’s 2 of them. Decent sized



    Seasoned up w/ some Fresh & Easy white meat seasoning. And the one on the left got only Plowboys Yardbird



    On the drum. Just enough room to keep air flow between them. Had to go lower rack only.



    A couple hours in



    Wrappin Up



    Pulled them off @ 165 in the thigh





    De-thighed & De-wanged



    4 deep…I was a little tired of shredding at this point



    Saved the 10 chix breasts, and 2 thighs. Shredded the rest for the food saver



     

    They were on the drum for about 4 hours @ 265. I should have got the deflector installed before this cook, but I just ran out of time. I was hoping to use the Mad Hunky brine as well, but the time frame I would have brined them in wouldnt have done them justice. Will update posts w/ their end results.
