Smile Our Thanksgiving Bird

As there was just 3 of us this time and we have stuff in boxes still we decided to just do a chicken instead of a turkey. I wanted to jazz it up a little so I went with a recipe I’ve done before. See Link: ary

I did tweak it a little as Mrs. DerHusker isn’t than fond of Rosemary so I substituted Thyme for it. Here are most of the ingredients.

I diced up one apple very fine and placed in a bowl.
1 1/2 tbsp. of Montreal Chicken rub.
1/2 tsp. ground ginger
1/4 tsp. cinnamon.
Minced the Thyme & Sage and into the bowl.

Enough EVOO to make this into a paste. (Approx. 1/3 cup)

Made pockets under the skin for the breasts and thighs.

Put the paste in under the skin.

Took the leftover and rubbed the outside of the chicken with some extra Montreal Chicken.

Place it on the kamado. Cooked for 2 hours at 275.

My wife made up the table. (No small feat as there were still boxes of stuff from the flood on it. You may see some of them in the background)

Here it is done.

I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving.
