Three Little Birds

Discussion in 'Poultry' started by chopper, May 9, 2009.

  1. Fired up the GOSM this morning and put three chickens on.

    I didn't do a whole pile of prep, but laid on a rub that will hopefully work out ok.

    Put the 8 year old offspring to work, and she came up with the following rub ingredients:

    Garlic powder (LOTS)
    Paprika
    Chili powder
    Sea Salt
    little bit of white sugar (again...all her idea)

    Mopped it about halfway through with a bunch of homegrown herbs (oregano, lemon basil, summer savoury) and melted margarine...along with garlic...what is with my kid? Always the garlic [​IMG][​IMG]

    Pics to follow.

    Wow, she's got creativity, nice to have the little one share the fun. Congrats my friend.
     
  3. She is definitely getting into this smoking thing. When i bought the GOSM, she made me "sell" her my Char Broil! She worked out heck of a deal out of me too! All I got for it was two Barbies...no clothes though [​IMG]

    Here's a couple of the chickens:

    Everything looks like it's going along just fine. Can't wait to see some pics of the finished product.
     
  6. Here's the finished birds. I didn't get pics of any plated pieces...but trust me, it was fantastic. I used the drippings for a gravy after skimming off all the fat. man oh man, chickens have a lot of fat in them!

    Love the song 3 Little Birds. Always calms the nerves when I'm streesed out. Way to get the little one involved.

    Great looking smoke!

    Good looking birds you've got there!

    I have a foodie in the making too. Love it when the kids help cook. It's great when my boys enjoy the same things I do.
