  1. So I decided to put my day off to good use.  Decided to smoke a couple whole chickens and some ABT's !!!!!!!


    My chicken rub before mixing :eek:)


    Da ABT's ready to go in,,,


    Chickens waiting for smoke.


    Ahhhhh paradise in the San Diego sun.


    2 hours and 15 minutes later we are at 165 IT.


    Smokey goodness.......damn juicy too!!!


    Poor little guys went to pieces :eek:)


    Beautiful ABT's.  Wife and kids couldn't get enough. Shoulda made more.

    So I smoked with Red Oak and the flavor was amazing.  I did add one small chunk of apple wood as well.  Smoked at 230F for 2 hours and 15 minutes. 

    Did something different on wife's suggestion.....she said when she removes the skin all the good rub is gone.....so I made a compound butter with my rub and placed under the breast skin.   This baby was bathed the whole cooking time with that deliciousness!!!   Made the bird so juicy and tasty that I will be using that method from now on!!!  

    Now it's cocktail time by the pool.  Ahhhhhh love smoking food......it's good to be hooked!!!
