First, let me do the obligatory disclaimer...DISCARD USED MARINADE AFTER DONE MARINATING"  ;)

Now for reality  ::) ...I marinated 1/2 the chicken pieces honey teriyaki marinade & 1/2 in carribbean jerk marinade for 2 hours. I saved the marinades & boiled them down (5 min boil time). Then I basted the pieces with the appropriate marinade for the last 1/2 hour (160 meat temp) of cooking time. I pulled them out at 165. I didn't get the legs in time so I basted them when they were done at 165 & stuck them in a 400 deg oven for 5 minutes.

Haven't had chicken in a while!  Guess what is going in the smoker this weekend.  Thanks for whetting my appetite Rhonda.  That chicken looks great and tasty!  Congrats on a job well done.  But remember hooking addicting the hubby is just as important as hooking addicting yourself!

EDIT - you know that didn't sound right - so I fixed it!

Caney... ;) hubby isn't a chicken fan unless it's deep fried which I absolutely refuse to do! He thinks it's too messy otherwise. Me, the messier the bbq the better ;D I may try to do some pulled pork for him next weekend  ???

Post by: OU812 on February 23, 2010, 02:05:08 PM
You mean to tell me the hubby didnt eat any of those thighs or legs?

I say you do some pulled pork for you and if he dont like it he goes hungry.  ;D

Boy, Hubby don't know what he's missing from the looks of those pics! 

Congrats on a wonderful looking (and I assume wonderful tasting) first smoke!!!

I'd be happy if my Mrs would cook, with or without a smoker. I do about 99% of it. At least that way I know its good.

Good lookin' chicken Rhonda and congrats on your first smoke.  It looks like you might have just a bit of prior experience cooking  ;D
Title: Re: 1st smoke a success!Thanks for the help.
Post by: rmdodson on February 24, 2010, 06:04:34 AM
Arnie, Yes I do have cooking experience...I started cooking @ age 7 (spaghetti w/ meat sauce)...& now I got me 38 years of experience! About the only thing I won't do in the kitchen is candy w/ the exception of fudge...a girl's gotta have chocolate  ;)

OU, oh hubby will eat gooey bbq, if I remove it from the bone for him. IF I make enough for him (which I don't always), then I do. It also depends on how good of a boy he's been.  ;) I did cut the meat off the bone on a couple of pieces for him & he loved it. I loved it so much that I ain't doin' that again! He's just not much on "finger" food. He even uses a fork on Pizza & french fries :o I know...that's just SSSSOOOO wrong.

I made my wife some killer spaghetti type thing last night and I dont even like spaghetti, she had all the stuff on the counter when I got home. She worked late and I was board.  ::) I had left overs, mmmmm smoked turkey.

Mine said something about not going to college just to cook for some stinky husband or something like that.  So I sighed and took over the cooking duties after our wedding.  Of course I had this hidden smile.  I love to cook.

And Paddlinpaul beat me to the punch also.  Yesirreee, your husband got himself a good woman!

Great comeback...  Yes, those of us who like to cook are "easy to train."  In my case, I cook and she does dishes.

That is some good looking chicken.

But as I said in another post those those bull nose rings don't hurt so bad once they are installed, but I am deathly afraid of those bull tongs.

I absolutely forbid him to grocery shop! One time I broke my foot at work & was on crutches so he decided he'd take me & push the cart (the cupboards were bare & he was hungry). It took us two hours to get the shopping done! While I was looking at stuff & comparing prices, he was loadiing the cart with cookies, potato chips & candy when I wasn't looking! I'm not talking 1 bag of each either. I'd remove the offending goods when he wasn't looking, only to turn around & find them back in the cart a few minutes later. We finally made it to the check out line & I thought I had everything bad out. Imagine my surprise when I got home & discovered 4 bags of cookies & 3 of chips, not to mention all the baked goods necessary to bake 2 pies, a batch of cookies & a cake! I never have figured out how he got them back in the cart...? Never again! >:(
