Just keep practicing and you will be able to put out some dericious birds whenever you want. The nice thing is that chickens cook the same as turkeys and chickens are cheap! Practice throughout the year so you know how the bird will act and next year, really wow them!
I couldn't agree more. thats all I want is to be with my family, Time is short and i spent so much of it working, I missed life, I've got a lot to make up for and a short time to do it.
as for the bird, my opinion, over cooked, pull at a lower temp, let it rest longer.
Like aawa said, practice, practice, practice, I eat what I cook good or bad.
Thats the learning curve.
