  1. My birthday is tomorrow so my brother came over yesterday to celebrate

    with a chicken, clams, ABT's and bourbon, lots of Bourbon:



    My fierce helpers:





    Of course, this was a brand new bottle when he got here, I think from here on out

    the pictures will get a little fuzzy, we finished that bottle before the food was ready:







    It was a good birthday...from what I can remember..Thanks for viewing...James

    Happy birthday! [​IMG]  Looks like a good time was had. [​IMG]
  14. Hi hardslicer, sure no problem, and thank you. I kept the temp at a dead 225*. We were having a rain storm midway

    through and I had to battle an extreme temp drop. I re-stoked and got it back up in short order. It took three hours

    for the bird and about 1 hour for the ABT's. The rub I use is a variation of Jeff's rub. I bought it and tinkered with it

    until I zero'd in on the flavor I like. (Hint: brown sugar is your friend, but not your best friend and pappy will always be

    your Dad).

    Oh, BTW, if you saw my ECB in the thread for Show Your Pit, I mentioned I was hoping my wife would get me a bigger

    rig for my Birthday. She is the coolest of the cool, I got it. I will be unveiling it shortly....stay tuned my friends...Thanks

  15. It was an awesome birthday Meateater, thanks. Everyone should have one like that least once.
