Beli's Pollo a la Naranja

Tonight I tried (tried, as in I didn't follow the directions properly) the Cherry-smoked pollo a la naranja that Beli recently posted. I used thighs instead of breasts. I wasn't sure what to do with the serrano peppers for the marinade, so I cored and chopped them. I closed the dome during the sear part of the cook which caused me to struggle getting a lower temp for the second part. :blush:
After the hot sear and now in the second (orange juice) marinade:

"Roasting" and being basted with the OJ:

Also, cooking after dark using a flashlight in my teeth since there is no electricity yet on my under-construction porch.
Final product:

Despite the buffoonery, the meal was a hit. Princess Jana thought it turned out great, so "what can I say"? :woohoo: Of course, most any edible meal that she doesn't have to cook is great in her opinion. :ohmy: :silly:

Thanks, Beli. Will definitely be in my "repeat performance" file. :woohoo:
