    I tried a new yard bird recipe yesterday and glad I did. I used a 4.5 lb bird and butterflied it into two pieces. I mixed 2 teaspoons of red pepper flakes and 1 teaspoon of the infamous 6-15 powder. After a quick coating of olive oil, the flakes went on and we were ready:



    I smoked them at 350 with hickory until I hit an internal of 170:



    Once they hit that, I threw it on the gasser for some direct heat and to crsip up the skin:



    Then, we were done with the bird:



    I then wrapped them in foil while I made some broth which consisted of 2 tbls of drippings, some lemon juice, honey and white wine.



    It turned out great, very moist and tender. Will do it again for sure.

    Looks great but wondering how the broth came into play? Thickened for a sauce or just to use at a later date?

    Thickened for a sauce and a little drizzle on the bird to give it a kick in flavor. I also drizzled it on some mixed veggies we had along wtih the chicken.

    I used Hickory. I'm a big fan of Apple wood but decided to try the hickory. Plus, we were behind a little so I didn't do a slower smoke at 250 per say and went 350 like I was doing a whole turkey.

    It worked out fine.

    Thanks for the compliments guys and gals. I learn a lot around here and when something works out for me, I like to share it so others can enjoy it or preferably, make it better.
