Chicken & Pork Butt

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by btg8r, May 31, 2013.

  1. This weekend I plan to smoke a small pork butt and a whole chicken at the same time.  My question is, if I smoke the chicken via "beer-can" method, will the beer adversley affect the pork?

    Hi BTG8R.

    Just keep in mind a basic food safety measure:  if you use a vertical smoker, put the chicken on the lowest rack.  You don't want raw poultry dripping on other meats/foods.

    Good luck!  Be sure to let us know how it turns out!

    Sounds like they got you covered here.

    The only thing I would add is that we need some q-view!
