    Looks great. Is that a WSM smoker?

    How did you like the Onions? No matter how sparingly I use smoke, peppers and Onions always pick up WAY too much smoke for my taste. The meat will be great, but the Onions terrible. I probably leave them on too long I suppose.

    Good looking bird you got there. Let us know how it turns out.
  8. Yes it's a WSM

    The onions turned out great it was the first time I have done onions I only let them smoke for about 15 min and kept them piled up on each other.

    Great looking bird. I am using oak more since I have so much of it. I have notice it give meats a deeper, richer color.

    I smoke my onions for atleast 4 hours, but do loosely wrap them in foil. Almost caramelized when they are done.
  11. Well the bird came out great, everything I could have hoped for for my first bird. The oak gave it a mild flavor almost sweet will use it again on some other things and see how it does. here's the last of the Qviews and by the last pic you will see why..

    Awesome! Great looking bird.

    Definetly try flash's method to the onion. I've done it and it's awesome. I added smoked gouda to it and it was delicious with my steak.

    You can Google up Red Oaks (used more for smoking) and White Oaks to find out about all the types. I think the reds have a little heavier flavor over the whites, but not 100% sure about that. I prefer Turkey and Blackjack oaks.
