Its been a couple weekends since I've had a day to just relax and smoke some meat with my egg so I took full advantage of it this past Sunday. I decided that I really wanted to smoke some chicken and see how it would turn out. I threw in a slab of pork spareribs since it was on special at Harris Teeter's.

I rubbed the Spareribs with MichelBob's rib rub along with brown sugar after covering them with mustard. I then took two whole chickens and rubbed them thoroughly with Adabo.

The spareribs were smoked for 4 1/2 hours and the chickens took about 2 1/2 hours at 250 degrees with hickory chunks. I put the chickens in an aluminum pan with soy sauce and beer all cover up to finsish off the ribs. Turned out super moist and delicious.

Here they are all ready to go.

Everybody in the pool. Notice my new Flip 3 ring.

It started to rain, but you can't let a little weather stop you.

Chicken all carved up along with the spareribs, only shot I managed to sneak in before the rabid pack of wolves descended on the food.

Had some unexpected guests show up so on to round two.

Filthy animals!!

Great day, good cook, chicken turned out so good. Smoking a whole chicken trumps a spatchcock as far as I'm concerned. So easy and is beyond moist.

The Pig Furnace does not dissapoint.

    ...was the icing on the cake to say the least. You can't beat going to a Stanley Cup game. Go Flyers!!

    First time at the Finals, amazing.

    A sea of orange.

    Sigh...after the pics of the great looking food in your first post, I thought we could be friends...then I saw your second post. Go Hawks!

    Kidding, of course. I'm sure you had fun...probably almost as much fun as the Hawks fans who got to watch them put up 7 goals on the Flyers Sunday night. ;)

    I envy you being able to go to a finals game in person. I'm sure it's a heck of an experience.
