Boston Butt and Chicken Halves
Cooking a boston butt and a couple of chicken halves today. Using soaked cherry and pecan wood. (Warning picture heavy.)
Cutting the whole chicken into halves bout a 3.5 pounder.
Used a herb type rub.
Prepping the 4.3 pound bb yes is pretty small
Used a kansas city rub (My rub mix)
I ended up injecting the BB and i thought about putting some of the injection in the foil once i warp it im wondering how that would turn out.

Thanks for looking i will update once i throw um on the smoker later on today.

Char Broil offset from walmart. works pretty good the only complaint i have is the temp gauge. It has the warm,ideal,hot gauge wished i would have payed more attention when i bought it. but im not complaing holds temps pretty good usually run it where the needle is straight in the middle. 225-250 range. but thats a guess.

I have a couple of these and they are very useful, especially for the price.

Or, just jump in and get a dual probe unit.:thumb:

Keep the pr0n coming.:mrgreen:

For some reason here lately every time i use kingsford it seems like it doesn't last as long as royal oak. Put the chicken on about 3:30 and man the Butt is looking good.

Does the bark need to be off the wood? I've heard it can cause a bitter taste.

I usually leave the bark on. Ive never had problems with the bark on i haven't got a bitter taste in the meat.

I really liked the combo of Pecan and Cherry but i wish it had a little bit more of a smoke flavor. but that's just me.
