Going to cook a young chicken and a rack of spares in the Primo XL. Using all natural lump from Whole Foods- which is really nice btw. I don't have a Whole Foods in Amarillo but pick up a few bags when in Santa Fe or Dallas. Why no smoking wood- just want to try without. Meat seasonings and lump coal.

Notified the Boss I needed another day off. Slept yesterday 8:45 to 7:00 am this morning. Not 100%, but all systems normalized and 1000% better.

Guess if I was ever going to quit alcohol this would be the time as I have a 6 day unplanned head start. Maybe a glass of wine :-))

Most of the PBC crew don't add wood and are just happy to see the smoke ring from the charcoal. Lots of things i cook I don't add wood chunks either, just the drippings flashing back give me enough BBQ flavor. Enjoy your day off and rest up!

No, I will use diffuser plates. Here are spares rubbed and ready. Very light dusting of KS and CBP. Then a good amount of Sucklebusters Hoochie Mama and sealed that with about two tablespoons of yellow mustard

How do you like the Farmland ribs? I see them on sale once in awhile but have never tried them, always leary of them being enhanced.

I've never had a bad rack of all Natural St Louis cut spares from Farmland. Always meaty and nice uniform trimmed. Never an aroma when you open the cryo.
I will pick Farmland natural over IBP/Excel etc side by side every time. All Farmland products I've eaten and cooked- ribs, breakfast sausage, shoulders butts etc have been great

Just put a light glaze of honey-Sprite and Stubbs Sweet Heat. Let it set about 15-20" call it good. Chicken rocking along doing its thing. No sauce for her.

See all this?? In the trash. The chicken still had feathers and quills when I opened- smelled fine though. I temp'd chicken 187-200 brought in cut ribs and took this photo. Then noticed Chicken was running bloody juices from breast bone and quarter joints. Sucks- I know it's at safe temp but mind can't get past chicken blood and/or chicken red juices.

Well, that is a bummer, those ribs looked great

Good link above about young chickens, which this was. I'm positive it was temp safe, I just can't get past red chicken blood. I feel sorry for the chicken and the pig :-((

Stomach flu will have you thinking all kinds of crazy thoughts. :sick: Now just calm down, relax, get better and at least you got to cook the food. That is therapy in it's self.

They sure looked good though.

I would have tossed it all too. I blame the lack of alcohol.
