I took a stick of butter and let it get to room temp and then chopped a couple sprigs each of thyme, rosemary, and sage and stirred it all up in the morning. Gave it a few hours before I put it on the birds. I had a bunch left so after an hour I melted the remainder in the microwave and then basted the taters and birds with it. I had the coals pushed to one side with some fire bricks and did the entire cook indirect at 355 degrees. I don't remember if I said above but the total cook time was 1:45, and even then I could have probably gotten away with 1:30, I was just trying to get a little more color/fat rendering in the skin.
