    these were tasty,,,
    I brined them 4 hours with,

    2 gallons water

    2 cups kosher salt

    1 cup sugar

    rosemary

    creole seasoning (couple tablespoons )

    I did one of them with jeffs rub on it and the other did lemon pepper and creole seasoning. used mesquite and apple,

    cooked at 350 for 2.5 hours and backed it down to 225 till they got to 165

    the ribs were leftover so I decided to throw them on there, kinda dried them out though.

    Darn good lookin' birds, congrats on a great smoke. Nice to see someone else using high heat on the birds, then backing the temp down. Thanks for the Q View!

    the one that I did with jeffs rub was real good, I cant say about the other one because it looked like a pack of pirahna got into it, so never got to taste it, but everyone said it was REAL good

    Nice lookin birds! Ifin yer interested try a honey/butter glaze, equal parts honey an real unsalted butter. As soon as the birds come off, brush it on an let set fer a bit. Good stuff!

  12. "cooked at 350 for 2.5 hours and backed it down to 225 till they got to 165"

    those are great looking birds. Do you remember, roughly, how long it took them to get up to 165 after you backed the heat down to 225? Im going to try this recipe this weekend and was just wondering if ill have time to cook up a fattie along side the birds after turning the heat down or if they came to temperature way to quickly to have them finish at the approximately same time.

    i've never done fattys , i'm going to tonite though.. so i'm not sure if they'll finish together or not. It took about an hour to get to temp. though. I forgot to set the timer on the thermometer.

    hope this helps
