    I had a great Easter Chicken Smoke (high temp) and explained to my wife how these pieces (thighs and legs) work so well due to the type of meat that they are. We are doing chicken for the family again this weekend and have been requested to add chicken breast to the mix. I have told her that...

    Introduction & Emergency Turkey Help!!!

    I look forward to hearing about your results. Sorry I couldn't post back we were on the road. I just thought that the way the website describes smoking turkey is easy and solid. The reasoning for higher temps for me was that the turkey doesn't need to be broken down low and slow. I was...

    Website / Book

    Your website used to be comprehensive in terms of the entire 5 Step Method. I tried to go back to the website before posting the topic and noticed that it is totally redone. It only has Step 1 listed as an option to view. Will the other steps be added online or is the main website a teaser...
