with a bang. This has been the most frustrating season I have ever had. Our flock numbers appear to be down for lots of reasons, but today was encouraging. I heard more today than I have all season and managed to tag this old warrior. He had a double beard and 1.5" spurs.

Cool bird! Double beard and 1.5" spurs. Nice! How long was the main beard? And you smoke the breast? Doesn't it get tough?

No, it doesn't get tough. Slow smoke it at about 210 degrees for maybe 1.5 hours. It's my favorite way to have it now. You do need to have a internal temp probe on the breast to watch the temp. I pull mine off as soon as it hits 160.
The beards were 10" and 6"
