I brine turkey for Turkey Day and find it is much more juicy. I'll use a similar brine recipe that I use for turkey.
I am concerned about over smoking so is 2-3 apple chunks good?
Mdboatbum - Thanks for tip on the MM... I'll do as you suggested and fire full chimney and then dump more on top to get smoker nice and hot.
Still undecided on the spathcocking.
