    Dale,[p]CWM pointed you to a great setup to cook da TOM. [p]I usually will put in on a setter (wire) sitting in a foil pan. Early on, 200 or so for 30 minutes while the wood chips and chunks I threw in are doing their duty, then 350 until my temp probe chimes its done (in the breast).[p]Many ways to do things, this is just mine.[p]Cajun (Dale too)
  • Cajun, Thanks, couldn't wait to cook something....went and bought me a big ole t was just great...can't wait to start on the bird......
