    I just threw 7 birds in a brine pretty close to this recipe. I can't wait to get mine on the smoker tomorrow. I'm looking forward to seeing your qview.

    Smoker is up to temp time to put the bird on
    [​IMG]

    About a 1 1/2 hours in and the bird is looking good
    [​IMG]

    2 hours and internal temp was 160F pulled bird of and foiled for a nice rest

    The bird was not for this dinner so no money shot sorry. I did have a lot of coals left so I tossed on a chuckie

    [​IMG]

    About 2 1/2 hours in and looking good [​IMG]

    Now time to toss back one of these and watch the race [​IMG]

    Thanks for looking. Have fun and happy smoking :)

    I should have added that it was smoked over Royal oak with cherry wood .. And I had a smoker temp of around 300F and the skin turned out great..
