First attempt at Q-view with Turkey and Pheasants

Discussion in 'Poultry' started by bandcollector, Dec 24, 2009.

  1. You could imagine my excitement working through the ins and outs of Photobucket. With my new found enthusiasm I Smoked a turkey and some pheasants in my UDS and wanted to share the results with some Q-view.

    Well.................Disaster struck!..............I can't catch a break.

    As I was removing the turkey from my UDS the rack collapsed and the bird fell smack dab into my charcoal basket. You could imagine what followed......cursing........panic........and some quick reaction on my part. Flipped the drum over and rescued the turkey from its fiery hell. Poor thing....didn't have a chance.

    Poor unsuspecting thing with his pheasant pals.

    Preparing the ammunition

    Everyone into the pool!

    Pheasants no worse for wear after two hours.

    I'm Hit!!!!!...................What a disaster...................Looks like some HoBo with tattered clothes!

    Well anyway at least I have learned how to post Q-view!

    Dang! Laughing with you on this one, Bandcollector. I've done that before in my barrel - when I do, I don't even wipe off the charcoal - it becomes "caveman food"!

    Actually read a food review in a magazine while flying one time - some high dollar chef back East actually grills T-Bones that way, throws them right on the coals, hence the "Cave Man" technique.
  7. lol..this same thing happened to me once on my old charcoal ECB. I lost a whole grate full of country ribs in the water pan.

  10. Should have seen me........... spitting, cussing, upside down in the smoker, singed my eyebrows, until I realized that the bird wasn't going to be lifted out of the, I dumped the whole thing on the driveway and salvaged the bird..........a little washing off and into the oven to finish it off.

    Merry Christmas everyone, John
