Yeah my "fresh" bird was a little frozen...I ended up with a 15lb honeysuckle white. The frozen butterball's were 1.09 a lb but i didn't have 4 days to defrost in the fridge nor did i wanna deal with the water defrost. I have never smoked the honeysuckle white brand before...hope it comes out good.
My plan is to inject with Louisiana Brand Cajun Butter and then rub down with Plowboys Yardbird. Smoke at 325 to 350 on WSM with 2 fist sized chunks of cherry and use stubbs natural briquettes.
I'm thinking about leaving a stick of butter out til soft and mixing the plowboys with it and then rubbing that between the skin and meat. Thoughts? I think with the cajun butter injection i need to go bbq flavors and not herb and spice flavor.
