lets do everything wrong. cook it low and slow with only a pound and a half lump in the pit, cook it with half a bag of chips, use mustard with the rub, cook it upsidedown hanging in a rib rack, cook it til its done then cook it some more, pull it and add bbq sauce. what do we get, tasty sandwiches



its done, lets inject and cook it again


nice and crunchy now


lets not use a knife



lets eat

    Wow.  Just had dinner and now I'm hungry again.  Great way to show there's more than one way to successfully cook.
    It's not a science, it's an art. And it's flawed.

  • What a disaster,  ;) ;) Man, way to go, don't follow the rules and look what you get. Awesome looking meal.

  • The results look far to good to be an accident, be honest did you set out to do this or was it a wonderful accident?

    Looks incredible. Great job, thanks for sharing.

    no, i was shooting for it, i wanted the texture of a low and slow for a pulled sandwich, its different than a roasted texture. i wanted more moisture so i injected it, never did that before. have roasted plenty of birds upsidedown, always more moist but not presentable for the table on the holidays, first time low and slowing upsidedown. i did the bird direct just because i wanted to. oh, it was good even though your supposed to roast a turkey in a pan over a platesetter at 325 to 375 degrees

    I wouldn't feed that to my dog, cuz I'd eat it all myself. Looks GOOD..

    Not to get technical, but according to chemistry alcohol is a solution...

    i brought it up to about 180 in the breast, figured with the added injection during the cook and the sauce dumped on later it would be fine
