    kona tim,
    Yeah...C~W got real close on that one. It was a 4 pound bird, and CW said 80 minutes at 375 indirect. I ended up doing it at 350, and it took 90 minutes.[p]Hope that helps. Keep an eye on your polder![p]Pigcicles!! Good one. I presume that is ribs.[p]Cheers

    kona tim,[p]Temps I use are usually about 350-375 for 1 1/2 - 2 hours depending on when the roster crows (well done)

    kona tim,
    If you haven't tried Tanker Tim's Okinawan Wings, put it on your list! My favorite anyway.

    Nature Boy,

    Bama Fire,
    They are best marinated overnight. I usually squirt a bit of Sriracha Chili sauce in too, and some Maggi Seasoning as half of the soy sauce. Toasting the sesame seeds first really creates a nice flavor also. Man, I gotta do some more of those. [p]Once I brined a huge batch in Brant's brine, then marinated with the Okinawan recipe. Overkill?? Probably, but dem was gooooood![p]This kind of talk is dangerous around 5:30 when my stomach is growling.[p]Cheers
