Yum! Yardbird rubbed chicken. It's the favorite around my house too.

Looks real tasty.

Appearance, taste, texture...(not necessarily in that order...)

I used the propane starter to light the chimney. I was a little pressed for time so I just loaded up a chimney and let it rip. It seems to be faster than taking the time to make a pile and igniting it. Plus, I hadn't tried lighting the chimney with the propane starter so I wanted to see how well it worked.

I HIGHLY recommend the Plowboys Yardbird Rub. Great balance of flavors and made the chicken a nice color.
