Since Debbie put in her pie, I thought I’d put in my project of the day. It’s smoked chickens.

But this really is all about woodworking, the smoke wood was cherry scraps that I had as leftover from my last Cherry project.

They were smoked for around 8 hours at 200 degrees.

It’s never too cold for smoking. (Food that is)

It looks like we have to add an adendum on the Lumberjocks logo, ”lumberjocksncooks”

One good reason to “segregate” your sawdust – not just by type so much as flavor (and toxicity) I saw Alton Brown on the food network, use sawdust and a hot plate (in a cardboard box no less) – I bet that chicken is fantastic!

I’ll join that roster of jocksncooks! – anything to combine interests….

I’ve used walnut, oak, cherry and maple and mesquite wood chunks. The mesquite I have to buy, I don’t have any lumber. I’ve never used sawdust or planer shavings because it is usually all mixed up. I have enough wood chunks for the smoking that I do. I’ve got 2 plastic storage totes full of wood chunks. I just run them through the bandsaw to get them manageable.

And yes they are ummy. Today, I also smoked hamburgers, and tenderized steaks. The hamburgers we will use for a fast meal on a bun, or we break them up to put in eggs in the morning. The kids will zap them on a bun on the way to school in the morning. I do like pork ribs best though.

When our older kids show up for the weekend, they empty the freezer of smoked meat as they head out the door.

And as you can see my daughter above asking for more chicken as user Missle.

I like hickory smoked flavor, but hickory can be difficult to locate in some parts. So when I needed some, I picked up a couple of hickory axe handles from the local home building supply and cut them into 4” ‘cubes’, soaked them in water for a few days and then placed them along with my BBQ coals. Worked great!

I think it would be best if you started Cookingjocks alone, I think we’d get all cluttered up.

Karson,

It has been said finishing is the most challenging for a lot of woodworkers. I want to know how you finished these chicks?

Looks awful good. Yum Smoked Chicken!
