  1. firing up the smoker for the first time today. starting off with 3 half chickens; Ill post pics of the fi

    nished product.
     
  2. forgot to take pics but my chickens came out amazing! I had some trouble keeping the heat down. next time a little less charcoal I guess, but they were the best chickens I've ever cooked. cooked in about an hour and a half. split side down till last 20 minutes and the skin was golden brown and crispy. cant wait to do a pork sirloin roast and more chicken this weekend!
     
  3. Glad your chickens turned out good for you  [​IMG]    Hopefully you remember to take some pics next time - they are VERY popular here  [​IMG]
