    Just trying new recipes. The bird on the left, used a little Brandy, Apple juice in the can and the one on the right Bud Light, Italian dressing, onion and bell peppers. Dry rubbed the three Pheasant. Ran the chickens  4 hours at 250. and a couple hours on the Pheasent. The Pheasent were a little dry but the oh chickens rocked. Smoked it on Saturday thinking it would last all week. Smoked two slabs of ribs also. Had to pull the menu this morning ALL GONE !



  2. Look good and great color. You might try thin slices of bacon on the pheasant to help with moisture.

    So which of the two chickens did you like the best - the brandy one or the Bud Light version?

    Ok, The best, Hard to say, they were both great. The brandy and apple juice had a great flavor and was amazingly moist. The BL with italian dressing with onion and bell pepper very moist as well but with a more a spicy flavor. What I didn't tell you was I smoked with the A-MAZ-N Pellet smoker using Apple pellets. Give em a try they are both worth the smoke. Depending on what the rest of your meal is may be the one you choose. Good Luck and "UP IN SMOKE" from Texas

    I built a fridge unit a month or so ago. I have pics I can send you in the morning. If you will go over and look under fridge build go down 15 threads you can take a look at my unit as I went through the build. If you have any more questions let me know. Be glad to help.
