    What cooker are you going to use Mosca?

      BGE. I never pulled the trigger on anything else, I can't justify the cost if I'll never use it. I'd rather save the money for vacation, or someday a steel table for the Egg. BGE and Smokey Joe "side burner" is all I need.

    Brine is done. I rubbed the birds with a mix of applesauce, bbq rub, and melted butter, then dotted them with butter, then on the BGE over pecan smoke @270, until the breast reads 165*.

      After 1:45, I took the birds out of the pan and bumped the pit temp up to 325, I'm going to put some crispness on the skin.

          Don't really recall hearing apple sauce used before.

            This came out really good, very tender with a little sweet and a little smoky. Served with home made potato salad and Caprese tomatoes. John, I got the applesauce idea from The Southern Living Cookbook. The sauce is my variation on Meathead's Lexington sauce. I had a vinegary sauce made up, but I didn't like it all that much. Mrs Mosca ate it without the sauce and thought it was great.

              Ahh you pulled it, that is my wife's favorite but you don't see it around too often.

                We don't pull much either.

                Nice going Mosca

                I'd have that BGE screaming at 400+ for chicken.

                @Jarod. 400° on the BGE is a loud whisper.

                I was following a recipe, Jerod. I usually do chicken @ 350-375. That's why I bumped it at the end, I couldn't stand seeing that skin at 275.

              Nice cook, Mosca ! Thinking to crank up the temp to get that skin where you wanted it looks like the stroke of genius for those birds. I like pulled chicken, too, as long as my (gloved) fingers can stand the heat!

              I loved your comment about only needing a BGE and a Smokey Joe side burner.

                Today was the best part, as I always take leftovers into our small workplace, and everyone is saying, "Holy heck, this is awesome! How did you get it so moist, so flavorful?"

                for those who just want to eat, I tell them that I know what I'm doing on the grill. For those who want to duplicate it, I give them the link to Amazing Ribs!
