Smokin in Texas

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by zombiehunter85, Aug 1, 2014.

  1. Hello everyone glad I finally signed up as a member.

    My name is Logan and I'm from Texas, I have been smoking now for 3 years my smoker is a Charr Griller with the side fire box. I mostly smoke with seasoned Peacan and Hickory wood from local vendors. My skill level is still Novice, however I have never had anything bad come out. My first smoke was a Pork Butt and I have been hooked ever since. This weekend I will be doing 2 whole chickens for the first time, Brined overnight in my own solution then rubbed and injected with my own spice rubs. I look forward to posting pics eventually when I get my camera going. Glad to meet everyone here!!  Thanks.

  4. Thanks Gary nice to meet y'all thanks KNIFEBLD that is exactly how I made mine. I brined them overnight in a solution of 1 cup salt, 3/4 cup soy sauce, 1/4 cup garlic and onion powder and 1.5 gallons of water. Rubbed them down with melted butter, and ground mustard, fresh rosemary ( inside cavity), garlic and onion powder and black pepper, they came out so tender, hard to think of doing chicken another way now lol. I will try to upload some pics of them soon, only have a finished pic forgot to take a before pic. got them yard birds for 77 cents a pound!
