1/2 Chicken

1/2 bird rubbed with DennyMikes Pixie Dustimage

Went indirect at 400 with a few cherry chunks, pulled at 165 in breast. Very good easy cook.imageimage<img

Washed it down with a Limbo IPA

    Very nice - we often do the same thing, only two of us and 1/2 yardbird seems to fit the bill.

    Had some fresh garlic scape linguini on the side and it was plenty for the 2 of us and my 3 yr old son.

    Further - in the past I've done a whole chicken with 1/2 with one rub, 1/2 with another. Provides variety for 3 or four without doing two chickens.

    That's a cool idea, might have to steal it...

    Cook the whole bird and make chicken salad with the other half. @Caliking approves of my chicken salad.

    Smoke the chicken. I mean smoke the s&#\ out of it. Use any recipe you like. We use mayo, celery and s&p. For the Salado eggfest I added grapes, peaches and used a peach rub but the star is the smoked chicken. I've never had any friends that didn't like it.

    Smoked chicken salad is awesome, Whole Foods had 1/2 birds packaged and already rubbed on sale, so I figured why not... Tasty birds and I'm really liking DennyMikes rubs.

    I must have drunk too many PBR 's. I didn't even know you could cook.

    Nah, it's actually pretty damn good. Went faster than a stripper's pasties during
    a dentist's convention.
