I smoked some chicken leg quarters yesterday. They turned out good. I had the fever and the quarters were quick. We have had a lot of rain for the past month or so.

Gators are coming to clean up what was left over. LOL. If we just had an offense, we would be a real contender.

On the smoker idea, I have an egg, but don't cook everything on it. My wife likes the wings and butts I've done in the past. If you are going to smoke meat, and do it right, it could very well eat up a good part of the weekend.

Haha, yea I stopped using my charcoal one in favor of an electric a couple weeks ago, makes the process much easier

It's pretty much an outdoor oven at that point, diehards say you some of the flavor, but it all tastes good to me, tending a fire isn't fun after 9 or 10 hours on a brisket. Chicken came out very tender, but it was pretty much gone by the time I remembered I was supposed to take a picture

Doubt i'll do a whole chicken again, too much work prepping it and not as much meat as just buying a pack of chicken breasts. Prob just try those next time.

if by drunken chicken you mean beer can chicken, that's a definite, but I've been going off a site called amazingribs.com and he argues pretty hard against the original theory, as the beer actually does very little in the way of penetrating the meat and can actually cause the chicken to be undercooked in the center when the rest is done, so by the time you cook it long enough to get the center everything else is dry.

Simply cutting the chicken (or turkey) in half seems to be a better way of keeping the moisture in that meat and maximizing flavor, and I have to say the flavor of the meat I cooked this weekend was probably top 10 for cooked chickens for me!

it's a bit of a read, but great info to be had.

love smoked, but too lazy to learn and don't need another 'gadget' when trying to downsize
