Smoked some overnight seasoned chick hind 1/4's and a 20lb Turkey today.
I use pear and manzanita wood. Smoke cook all day til about' 175drgs in the leg/thigh areas, and it falls off the bone for dinner.
Got a lot of meat off that bird. Beautiful day but COLD. All the snow melted from past few days of rain. I love the State of Jefferson ...:mrgreen:
Got a lot of work done today.
Life is good.
Dang, Pat that looks goooood.

Learn something new everytime I talk to him. What do you season the chicken with? I use a 1-1-1 dry rub of salt sugar and paprika. I don't have a smoker but am looking to get one this year. I usually do two five pound chickens on beer cans at a time on the grill.

Great lookin meal there!
I have a question though. Did you make that smoker? If so I'd like to pick your brain about it as I want to make one outta 55gal drum.

Kevin, I use Pappy's and garlic powder.
SSB I didn't make that one, but I know the guy that did. I believe it's a well pressure tank.
Mine isn't your Texas Pit style smoker with an offset burner, rather it's just a grill with 2 heavy woven wire grates which I like the best.
I also like this design the best as it's a great open grill when you want that, and when I want a smoker, I build a fire at one end. You get great offset heat control and you can limit your heat and smoke by opening or closing the 2 lids.
It has a big suface area, and I've laid out the hole thing for smoked salmon, or venison jerky.
You can slow smoke, or cook at any speed.
