Mule's smoked whole chicken on the BGE with Qview

  1. It has been a while since I posted a smoke. Nothing special. It's just a 5.5 pound whole yard bird on my small BGE. I am using Ozark Oak lump with oak for smoke.

    Here I am getting the BGE up to temp. I got a small shovel of coals out of the fire place to get it started..


    Last night I rubbed it down with my home made rub. I am using a beer can chicken rack with no can to hold it up.

    Here it is going on the BGE


    More to come.

    Happy smoken.

  9. Here is the final shots.




    That my friends is a smoked yard bird in 20° temps with 25 MPH wind. That is where a BGE shines.

    Thanks for looking.

    Happy smoken.
