    My brother got me a propane Smoke Hollow smoker for Christmas, and I've tried it out w/ chicken first (figured if I screwed up it'd be cheaper!).

    First smoke



    First bird was a beer-can chicken. Kids voted for no beer the next time!





    Second bird after watching a YouTube video on how to cut up a bird!



    Yummy stuff. Both smoked over hickory w/ only olive oil, salt and pepper.

    I've got some spare ribs to do this weekend!

    Man looked cold where those birds got smoked! But the birds sure came out looking like they should look after a proper smoke... Nice job, thanks for the pics...

    First bird I had some temp issues. Low of 200 (for a short period) and high of about 320. Cooked a few hrs (2 1/2? 3?) Temp was low, I should have cooked it longer. This one was just under 5 pounds. It was in the teen's when I smoked this one. Not to pleasant to be outside monitoring the temp!

    Second bird the temp held pretty well at 275, started about 3:30 or so, and we were at the dinner table by 6:30. I got to try my new remote thermometer out. Pulled the bird at about 175 in the breast. It was in the low 30's yesterday when I started, we're going through a thaw that started yesterday.
