Drum Chicken and Twice Baked Potatoes

I am behind in posting some of my pictures. This was a cook I did for company at least a couple of weeks ago.
I brined the chicken in a mix of water, kosher salt, pepper corns, garlic, 1 bay leaf and some red pepper flakes.



Heated my drum to 315 and added some hickory.....







I made my twice baked potatoes and added them to the drum after about 40 minutes...







Everything took close to 1 hour and 15 minutes.



The smoked chicken, twiced baked potato, cantelope and salad...



It turned out moist and tasty!

Since I started brining my chicken beore smoking it, I've never done it any differently. Juicy is not the word.

I've been hooked on brining my chicken for years. I think I'll try adding the red pepper flakes to mine.

Wow! That looks fantastic! I have to grill a bunch of chicken for a family reunion this weekend, and now I think I'll definitely brine it all before hand. Looks delicious!

YD, me too! One of my favorite side dishes. Smoking them adds a whole new level of flavor too. :)

Where would some one like me find a food grade drum in somewhere like Bellingham Wash. Everything is plastic in Vancouver

Hi Mike!

I'm not sure... but a lot of folks have been getting them from Craigslist. You might keep an eye out there or even place an ad.
Good luck to you!!
