Shallots. There's a vegetable I don't buy. I need to up myself on cooking with them.

Wow! Almost a year to the day, we did a load of Tasso and Andouille over the "New Years" weekend.

I'm smoking a chicken this weekend. It'll be my first smoke ever on the electric UDS I got for Christmas. I want to replicate these smoked whole chickens we used to buy from the church growing up. They were so moist and melt-in-your mouth tender. If I remember right, they cut out the backbone so it lays flat.

Good eatings to you with your new purchase. I just received a portable gas grill on Ebay for $29 + $8 shipping. Very hard to find. I'm giving it a go this weekend. Just like you, I used to bbq game hens on this type lava rock gas grill. I adapted "Son of Hibachi's" D battery operated Rotisserie ($29) to work with this unit. I had this setup working years ago, but lost touch with it.

I replaced the lava rocks with ceramic briquettes for less flare ups. This is the basic model bbq that's hard to find now.
I'll post pics showing the rotisserie and explain how it was adapted to fit.

Congratulations on your new UDS! You'll definitely enjoy your new cooker.
As for smoking chicken, go light with the smoke wood as poultry sucks up lots of smoke like sponge.

I've smoked turkey and chicken with cherry wood and really like that.

That's the way I do it on my Weber kettle. You still have to get to 161 F.
