    Just getting 2 chickens ready to smoke tomorrow.  Set them in a brine bucket for overnight brine swimming.  Tomorrow they will sit in my Smoke Hollow#8 smoker with Hickory and Cherry till the meat falls off the bone. 

    Some pictures will follow so get those mouths watering and ready for a feast.  LOL....Should be good.

    I took the chickens out of their brine, rubbed them with olive oil and SPADE L spices then sat them upright on some cans with oliveoil, water and spices.  Smoke em up the butt, should be good.  Iam using Applewood and Cherry wood chops to smoke, no Hickory this time.  I need to get some Q-Views going on here......I hate to open the door at this time though.....will have to wait.

    Here is the final on one of them.  The Cherry and Applewood was perfect.  I may never do hickory again on chicken.  Brining overnight also made the chicken VERY moist.  EXCELLENT.....

    They look great. You have inspired me to give beer butt in the smoker a go. Thanks.
