This morning was overcast with the Marine Layer in. I just got some of Simply Marvelous Spicy Apple Rub from Steph so I thought I would try some Smoked Chicken. Fired up the Egg to do a cool smoke with Hickory and Apple wood.
Filled the drip pan with Apple juice to help keep moisture and also not get the smoke taste from burnt chicken fat.
Went to Albertsons Market and picked up two 5.5 lb. chickens.
Rubbed them with the Spicy Apple Rub inside and out, and under the skin.
Put the two chickens in the Egg @165*
@ 9:30 am.
By 10 am. the the Sun started to poke thru. In the upper middle of of the last picture you can see Pigeon Flying right to left.
By 4:30 am 6-hrs. interior breast temp. @150*
@ 5:45 pm I ramped up the done temp. to 250*.
@ 7 pm. 9.5 hrs I pulled the chickens internal temp. @170*
Let rest for 1-hr. and sliced into it, tasty and moist, this well make some great Chicken salads for lunch next week the rest for snacks and diner during the Week. The Apple Smoked Chicken was wonderful and spicy. You should try this Rub. Thanks Steph.
Thanks for looking
