    Just purchased a MES found this forum and had to join. Been hunting my whole life. Made a lot of jerky on a dehydrater. My Dad does a lot of smoking. So I decided to give it a shot. Tonight I will make a whole chicken and 6 thighs. on Christmas I will do a turkey. Wish me luck.

    Welcome Jammin!

    I'm right down the road from you.
    I just finished making my brine for chickens I'm smoking for Christmas dinner.
    Soak your Chickens or Chicken parts overnight in a brine solution the night before you smoke and you will be blown away by the flavor and juiciness!!

    Good luck and remember the qview!!

    Thanks Guys, I did not brine my chickens. But I will on the turkey. I am excited and scared. If the chickens don't go well I will grill the turkey on my weber.

    Some say they won't do a 20 pound bird and some do. I spatchcocked a 19 pound turkey and it came out great. Just make sure it gets to 140 degrees within 4 hours.

    Agree with Bassman. Just take some sheers and along each side of the backbone and spread her out!
    It will cook beautifully, may not look traditional but tastes great.

    Thanks for all the welcomes and comments. I will attempt to spatchcock my turkey. Trying to figure out what to use ie knife, scissors, chainsaw. BTW I belong to a LandCruiser forum that is awesome with info. You guys may rival them. Great site thanks to whoever host it. I will learn the names as I go. [​IMG]
