    Scott Hardin,
    First of all, welcome to the forum.
    Do Not peek at it. Trust your polder and pull it when the internal temperature is right.[p]Enjoy,

  • nah.. I didn't peek at it... I have smoked some birds before... but tried the bringing thing today, for the first time... I checked it about 2 hours in, added some water to the drip pan... checked it an hour and a half after that and it was done... [p]a 7.24 pound chicken, at 250, only 3 and a half hours... usually it takes a solid 4 hours... I guess the brining really does help it cook a little faster... [p]but the brining was great... it really did bring out the flavor... so, I send thanks to everyone here in the forum... and others places online that helped me get this far. :)[p]-S.H.
