Brew 'n Que on Saturday. Brewing up a new recipe I designed for an Apricot IPA. Along with that I am doing a Side By Side Chicken Challenge. When I get off work tonight (yes I'm at work til 10pm tonight...yes I'm on the interwebs at work..yah yah...productivity schomoductivity) I'll be mixing up a brine and tossing in a chicken. Tomorrow I will take said chicken, along with another un-brined bird, rub and cook beer can-style over some pecan to see the results.
Exciting weekend of firsts for me:
First time using lump
First time smoking chicken
First time brining
First time brewing the beer recipe
First time firing up the smoker for the season (yah, yah...no "season" for BBQ...don't start)
