    Today I'm making some chicken quarters, their finishing in the brine right now. A simple one, water, salt and a cup of soy sauce. Today is my first real 'take it easy and do nothing day' in two months, so I'll post pre and q views just for fun. Haven't done that in ages. Be back soon!

    chicken is drying and dripping out now.

    I have a cookie sheet ready for it. Spices and rubs laid out and a 1/2 stick of melted butter with garlic, onion, italian seasonings and celery salt all mixed in. going to inject the meat with, then put the rub on and let sit for a 1/2 hour in the fridge. Then to the Q.

    Since what happened with your job, I'm glad to hear you're so busy! I'm taking that as a good sign........

    I Q'd some Boston Butt today. Got a decent deal at Sams' last night. I got two 7 pounders and cut each in half. There's only 3 of us, and I didn't feel like tending the cooker for over 10 hours. Took 5 hours to get to 205*. Dinner's in the cooler right now.

    Hey Steve,

    Thanks, yes, June so far has been killer busy, man if we were like this every month (won't be this good, but wishful thinking!) I'd be one super happy camper.

    Hey cool, those sound really good! I must have missed your thread, or maybe I did comment in it, I can't remember, brain dead here :)

    I just had a cool grease fire, [​IMG] had to do some re-arrranging, man looked like a forest fire on the deck with all the smoke! The chicken will be crispy lol

    Holy Pigmeat, Batman!!! My butt ROCKED!!!!!!

    I tell you Ron, the smokenator assesory for the Weber grill beats my Brinkman hands down. And I like the Brinkman.

    Best pulled pork yet. I made a Chucky on it a few weeks ago, and it was the best yet too.

    It's good to see things are going well for ya Ron.

    Man the last time I did a bunch of quarters I was surprised on how much liquid came out of those darn things. My drip bucket was darn near full.

    They sure do look good, nice smoke Ron.

    Hey Rick,

    Thanks, I hope things keep going good, I could get used to working from home!

    Thanks, they smell good, look good, hope they taste good! I'll know in about an hour, I'll post the critique ;-)

    Yes, those things drip like mad and squirting them with liquid herb butter didn't cut down on the grease dripping either lol
