        How do we tell how much juice obviously pools in the breast? Seems if that were true then it would lose less weight than the other.

            If you click The Pit tab up top, then pick an area to post and click that, then you should see the New Topic.

            I say beer can chicken on both. 16 ounce cans of Old Milwaukee Light. Don't open the beer cans at all. Rub down the cans with clarified butter, after inserting in the bird (good luck with that).

            Cook to 195 internal, or until "Ernest like skin" literally pops off the bird onto the grates.

            You'll thank me later.

              Reminds me of Imus in the morning when someone on his radio show used to play Wilfred Brimily /Quaker Oats / stuffing a turkey skits.

              I really like Jerod's idea here. But might I add- let it come to room temp first. Cook it until the juices are no longer pink. Push it until it feels like the heel of your hand. Only salt the top, salt wont travel up against gravity. Only smoke it for one hour, by then the smoke will have penetrated all the way down to the bone and it won't absorb any more. Thermometers are for sissies, real men take a chance on salmonella or dry meat, builds character and the ladies will flock to your door. Don't even think about having a Ford parked in your driveway while you're doing this, it will ruin everything because we all know they are just terrible vehicles and give off bad vibes.

              Now that we have all those important facts settled, I look forward to your cook.

              My only suggestion would be to use pecan - it has become my favorite wood for smoking chicken.

              We also like a light dusting of Tony Chachere's, but maybe try some HRR if you have some on one -- I have yet to try it, but it looked great in Aaron's pics.

              Jon do you want to borrow a pellet grill and impress your focus group for going outside the box and serving an incredible tasting chicken! LOL

                That sounds interesting, I hear you don't need a beer can pushed all the way up to the interclavicular cavity if you have a pellet grill.
