    While I've been BBQ'ing for a few years now, I am fairly new to SMF and with the rule here "no Q-View, didn't happen" I just completed my 1st official smoke. Today I smoked Game Hens on my new MES. Here is how it went:

    Here are the hens when I started.

    Then I rubbed them using Song of the South rub. My favorite for chicken.

    Here they are on the smoker.

    I smoked them at 250 for about an 1 1/2 hours then mopped them with KC Masterpiece BBQ Sauce and raised the temp to 275 for a half an hour to temp. Then I took them off


    Meat was moist and tender.

    Thanks for looking. Also thanks here for all for their ideas and techniques. They turned out awesome.

    That looks nice. I am looking forward to my first chicken; maybe early next week.

    Now those are some good looking birds that you did there Rst Hunter. Now we love them baby birds but I haven't smoked them yet I usually just use the regular grill. But I will have to try one day soon
