Note to self, remote thermometer is your friend, every time I opened the lid to check temperature, I would get a large spike that would take several minutes to recover from. Those kind of spikes could ruin a salmon... Must acquire remote thermometer.... Anyways, the chicken was delicious. Also, here is a picture of the UDS' new clothes.
Next time, try getting the UDS up to 325-350, and power through the cook. Poultry doesn't really like low n slow. Shouldn't take more than 2 hours ever to cook chix halves.
Nice UDS though.
