    Did some chicken quarters on the UDS this afternoon. I used the Kingsford Competition Briquettes by themselves because I was experimenting.

    Used pretty simple seasonings -- a little salt, pepper, garlic powder and onion powder. One of them got brushed with Woody's Cook-In Sauce. It was a gift from a friend so I figured I'd try it out. (Liquid smoke was a prominent ingredient, but I tried it just the same.)

    Here they are about an hour in . . .

    They were done faster than I expected. When I temped them after about an hour and 45 minutes they were at 167° to 172°. I let the drum creep up into the 300s with one cap off and valve about 3/4 open. The 3/4" exhaust holes on the lid seem to make it run hotter but it worked out fine.

    Here they are coming off the drum . . .

    and dinner time!!

    I ate the one with the Woody's on it but didn't sample any of the others so I don't know how it would compare. Could definitely taste the liquid smoke! [​IMG]

    Thanks for looking!

    Nice legs! Chicken I mean. Only a hour and 45. Got to love that. That makes chicken a week day smoke. Not just a weekend.
    I like.

    That looks good, Dave. I haven't tried any Woody's sauce in at least 25 years. May have to pick up a jar.
