Another Awesome smoke

  1. So I have done 4 chickens now with my MES. I have taken a liking to spatchcocking the bird and will say, I have become exceedingly proficient at it. Finally having the right set of tools also helps. I purchased a real good set of kitchen shears. Took me less then 10 min to open, cut clean and rub the bird this time around. Added another trick too,(at least to me) is I poked holes in the under skin to allow some smoke to creep in, as well as some steam from the water pan. It really upped the tenderness of the bird. I tried to remove this membrane/skin (similar to the membrane on ribs) the last time and it just made a mess.

    Here's a Qview of the completed bird! It was yummy.

    Great job on a great looking smoke. When things warm up here in MN, whole birds like yours are on my to do list.

    Nice work and you gotta love when you hit a procedure and can replicate it over and over...The ultimate goal of this in my opinion....[​IMG]
