  1. After my prev. thread under newbie i did my first cheese, think i should of did it longer as there was a hint of smoke just not that heavy taste but i will post over there, anyways, after waking up to a blizzard here in NY i started my mes and started smoking, grabbed 2 whole chix at .89/#, brined them in salt, sugar, thyme, rosemary, pepper, worch., and red wine for about 5-6 hrs, washed padded dry and made my own rub using one of hickory rub from aldi's, white pepper and bunch of other herbs, the other one was a onion, garlic, lemon, orange pepper blend i made up, preheated the smoker to 225 and set at 275 (mine's about 10* off) set for 3 hr 25min to start until the temps are right, using a maze n hickory and occa. dumping about 8 small chips into the bin for deeper flavor, att. is pics thanks, first time but it smells great, dog is going crazy, luckily shes only 8#'s so i don't have to fight w/ her.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    They look real good so far! You gotta get the inside of that smoker dirtied up a little, it's just too clean! Looking forward to the finish.

  4. ya know by the time i thought about it (i was trying to control my mouth watering) there was two empty carcass' so i apologize, will be sure to do it next time
     
  5. Lake, Next time take a pic of your doggie too and of course the smoked meats!!

    This site is animal friendly, a guy named Bear C. on the forums, even has Bears!!
     
  6. Man I love those windows on those smokers. I can't wait to get my fridge build going so I can have a nice big window to drool over my smoker as its going.
