    Well, got 3 nice size birds a sittin in the smoker, gonna be fer momma's day dinner we havin tonight, all the youngins is gonna be here and so is my mother. Tryin out a new glaze on one bird, it's a honey/butter glaze, let yall know how that works out too.

    Gonna have batch of slaughterhouse beans, delicous potatoes, homemade bread and a fine pie fer dessert.

    Also got me a bakers dozen of chicken legs in the box too, they make fer a mighty fine snack after work.

    Hope to do some ABT's afterin a bit, make them up fer snackin today too.

    As usuall, yall gotta wait fer the Q-View, but I thinks it'll be worth it!

    Hey yall, the Honey Butter Glaze is bout as easy as it comes.

    Honey/Butter Glaze:

    Equal parts melted butter and Honey, ifin its to thick, warm it somemore in the microwave and brush on yer birds.

    Thats it, all there is to it. Very tastey though!

    TMW, I think the skin has alot ta do within the spritz. Just my two coppers worth.
     
  13. if you cant get the to skin crisp try putting coals under it 4 a few min. or n the oven on broil 4 a few. I have a dry rub to go on beer chicken if yall would like it. really good. nice birds by the way.
