Ribs and Chicken quarters

Used the brine and glaze from Charcuterie for the chicken quarters. Found I really liked the brine for the chicken but prefered the glaze on the the ribs.
Also smoked a very small beef roast for about 4 hours then diced it up and threw in with some beans

No plate pics, when it was done I dove right in and my hands were a mess till it was a pile of bones.

    =D>  Smoking some beef to add to the beans as a side item for the chicken and ribs. That, my friend, is called raising the bar!  Nice work- it all looks beautiful.  

    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    I couldn't imagine using anything other than the R&B sliding grid. I have a PS that was purchased with the egg that is just used as a hot plate now.

    Looks great.  So you cooked the chicken and ribs at the same temp for the same time or you added chicken later?  Temps?

    250-270 dome temp. Cooked the ribs 2hr then foiled. When I foiled them I put the chicken on and cooked for 2hrs. After that unwrapped and sauced both the chicken and the ribs. Cooked probably another 45 minutes.
