    Here it is after 90 minutes at 325 degrees.  Breast and thigh temp at 180...skin is nice and crisp.  Hope it tastes good!

    Your yard bird looks like it will be mighty YummO. I like your smoker too. it looks like quite the heavy duty model for sure.

    Ever burn your knees on that smoker?  I'm definitely the type that would not pay attention and walk right into that firebox!  Great looking bird!

    Thanks guys...actually the firebox sits back a little bit so the grate in front of the cooking chamber keeps you far enough away from the box.  It is a little warm but I haven't burned myself yet.  A local guy builds these bbq's in his spare time from his auto body shop.  He has done some great bbq's.
