Discussion in 'Poultry' started by sin city smokin, Jul 5, 2015.

  1. Flew this one through the smoker last weekend; my first attempt at whole-bird smoke. Happy with the result...confirmed tenfold by the looks on people's faces after their first bite!

    - 12-hr slaughterhouse brine (slightly modified)

    - Injected 2 hrs before smoking

        2 C apple cider

       1/4 Jim Beam

       2 tsp garlic powder
       2 tsp celery seed

       3 tbsp butter

    - Rubbed 

      Garlic infused Extra Virgin Olive Oil

      Cajun Shake seasoning


    Into the smoker using Apple & Maple

    After a 5 hr low & slow smoke, spritzed w/ Apple Juice at the 3 hr point
