Thanks to SmokyOkie for the info on probe location in the bird. This bird by FAR was the best we have ever done on a pit! The only thing I would change for next time is a lil higher on the temps. We ran anywhere from 300 to 325. I would bump that 25* and will run 325 to 350 next time.
I may have to add another intake to the drum to get her at those higher temps. I did have to chase the 300*, the pit kept wanting to run at lower temps even with intake full open. I would have to crack the lid and the temps would come back up.
Also did a lil repair on the intake, it needed some firming up! J/B weld on outside only.
The chix was layin in 1 and half cups of butter garlic herb marinade for 6 hrs. Then we took Tony C's herb mix to her, boiled the marinade and mopped a couple of times during cook.
Chargriller was gettin lil rusty
1/2 way done.
Had a couple of pics turn out real good from last weekends smoke, that I didnt post.
Startin to get these birds figured out, finally!
