  1. Well, I think I did it....... LOL..

    First smoker run ever..

    Just a 5Lb Chicken and some Yams,

    Did a Chicken Rub, Can with Water and chopped Onions inside...

    Apple Wood....

    It was not bad, just fell apart...

    I think I'm Hooked!

    And It started to snow in the middle of it, does not happen very often in Cali.

    The Lil Woman was way happy!"" target="_blank">[​IMG]

    Looks great. How were the yams?  Snowing at Magic Mountain WOW
  9. Thats a beautiful thing, wait til you do some pulled pork, then you are really hooked!
  10. Thank you all for the kind words!

    The Yams came out great, I put them in about an hour after the bird, came out nice, soft & tasty...

    I guess for a first smoke it all came out good, I'm still new at this... I must do more!

    What I have learned so far...

    I need a remote Temp Probe, the little "Stick in and Cook" thing sucked!,

    Thank god I had another temp probe to really check the temps, but opening the door drops the temp.

    A remote probe would be really nice. (Note to self... Find one!, any recommendations?

    Yes, Snow in Valencia is rare, I have only seen it a few times in the last 30 years...

    The Lil woman loved the Bird and also the snow..

    Thanks again for the kind words, I think I'm hooked on this, just need to play more :).
