I'm taking my first step into the world of charcoal today. Did a test yesterday and I have the warm & fuzzies about it. Thought I'd try something simple so a yardbird it is and some red potatos. Had a 5 3/4 lb chick in the freezer. Stuffed the cavity w/ chunked apples and the remnants of a smoked sweet onion from last week. While the chick wasn't a "score", it's not bad. Here she is in all her naked glory awaiting the chunked apples & left over smoked onion. Decided to use Adkins rub on the chicken prior to the bacon wrap. All stuffed and bacon wrapped while the red spuds keep her company. Gets lonely in that pan all by herself. On the smoker awaiting the Kingsford w/mesquite. I'm using apple wood chunks to compliment the mesquite. Here she is 3 hrs in & looking quite tasty. Gonna slip her the "probe" and take her temp. Will have more pics at the conclusion. Thanks for lookin'
