    My T-Bird for tomorrow is in the books. Just took it off.. A brined bird (my first brined) and smoked with sweet hickory pellets, followed up with  smoked Kosher Salt and a variety of peppers: Jalapeno, Habanero,  & Poblano.The peppers are on now at 110 and will go until they dehydrate. Then I am going to chop 'em up an mix with the salt... Will see how they come out..

    Here is my handi-work for tomorrows Throwdown here in New Braunfels Tx.

    13lb bird - 250 for 6hrs - stuffed with apples and onions, a little "Slap yo momma" seasoning" mixed with butter injected under the skin in all the right places.

    I think I got a little too much smoke on the skin. (one of my favorite parts)., I tasted this morning and it was a little heavy, you know hickory..... so I just threw the skin away except for a few small pieces. I carved the bird and will reheat for dinner today.
