    I finally got to use my AMNPS this weekend. I was very pleased with the results. I have learned a lot from this community so far. 

    Bird Number One - 

    Brand - Smart Chicken

    Preparation - Italian Dressing marinade

    Bird Number Two - 

    Brand - Kadejan  http://www.kadejan.com/ ( This place is right by my parents house so getting this kind of quality is awesome)

    Preparation - Slaughter house injector marinade. 

    Both birds got rubbed down with my BBQ rub ( I had a hard time getting the rub to stick. I should have dried the birds better.)

    I started out with Hickory charcoal to preheat the smoker. 


    Then I switched to the good stuff. I am thinking about switching to this as my go to charcoal. 


    Time to light my Amaze-N Tube Smoker I put a mixture of Pecan and Applewood at the bottom then filled the top with a bit of Hickory.  I placed the smoker at the bottom of the food chamber away from the heat of the fire box


    Loaded the birds 


    This is after a hour or so



    I think this is what ya'all call thin blue smoke, thoughts?


    . I was having trouble keeping temps as the outside temp was dropping and it was pitch black out. So I decided to move to the oven. 3.25 hours on the smoker 45 minutes in the oven. 


    After a 20 minute nap!


    Cut up and on the plate


    The flavor was wonderful. The leftovers are going into a smoked chicken and wild rice soup!
