Chicken livers
« on: September 16, 2009, 09:30:08 am »
Livers rinsed, membrane cut off, wrapped with bacon and onto the skewers.  Smoker heating up to 220



1 1/2 - 2 hours of smoke, just till the bacon starts to crisp up and the livers are tender



Might as well do some chickens.  Halved, simple salt and pepper seasoning

Them is some damn fine looking Yardbirds WTS!! How long did you throw the smoke to them to get that much coloring?

Those were a bit over 4 hours, actually a little longer than I planned on.  The trick to get the coloring is to give them a baste of melted butter after about an hour and a half.

I am curious on how the livers tasted.  Hehe - there are a couple of fellas on here that did not have much success with livers.  :D  Do not recall what kind of liver though.

Livers were excellent, but its an acquired taste, I'm the only one in the house that will touch them....Love livers can't stand gizzards, go figure!

WTS,
Without a doubt those have to be best looking chicken halves I have ever seen.

Note to self:  Baste chickens with melted butter 1 and 1/2 hours into smoke.

I think that may well be Iceman and me!  ;) :D  Seem to remember that I tried lambs liver although I can't remember what Pat used. All I can say is good luck to anyone who tries smoking liver although it is great to see you have made a success of it westexasmoker.  :)

I love liver myself, but can't imagine adding a smoke flavor. Like the bacon idea though.
