My plans tomorrow are to pat dry the birds and sprinkle Plowboys Yardbird rub... come to think of it...perhaps I should experiment and see if I can taste a difference. One with rub and one without.
Get the drum temp 375* +/- for the 1 to 1.5 hours that everyone recommends. Use the mop (butter/lime) and spray (apple juice and cider vinegar) every 30 min or so.
Hopefully I do not get over whelmed and am able to take some pr0n.
That sounds like a pretty solid plan. Only 2 steps i would add:
-Remember to have fun
-takes notes, to learn from it
