    I bought a whole chicken and a rack of ribs (whole loin) last night that I intended to smoke this weekend but my kids insisted I had to do the chicken tonight since I worked from home today.

    I rubbed it down with a rub from the Peace, Love and Barbecue and let it rest in the fridge for a while. When it was time to go I dropped it on top a beer can holder with a can of water a splash of cider vinegar and half an onion in it.

    Now for the qviews. I got a little ahead of myself at the end though and started cutting it up before I took a pic of the finished product. [​IMG]

    Half way.

    3/4 done.

    Doh! It came out great, very tender and juicy. Not much smoke ring but it was there. I used apple chips and even threw in a couple of briquettes to try to help the ring formation. My 8yo daughter is a pretty picky eater and she loved it.

    It is a hard-learned discipline to keep the camera ready to take all the pics you wish you would have! Keep on crankin' out the good stuff, you'll be plenty eager to share the results with your new family here!
  8. Nice bird! How many chips did you use? Just a handful? soak or no soak?
