    So, currently I'm smoking a chuck underblade. Well, my wife started inviting her family over so I decided to prepare a chicken with the beef.

    I brined the chicken overnight in salt water, cajun spices & a little white vinager.



    Here's the birds after my very novice butchering job



    in the brine. I then rubbed the bird with paprika & blacken chicken seasoning. I also injected it with a little olive oil & spices.

    I'm smoking at 225-230. I didnt take it off yet. The thigh is at 165 but the breast is at 157. Should I continue to smoke it?
