    We just bought a new grill that also has a smoker function (don't ask me about it, that's DH's expertise, lol) I have 3 roos that I'm ready to do in and they are about 260 days now give or take. I haven't processed birds this old yet but I am assuming the meat would be tough from what I've read (if I'm wrong please educate me [​IMG] )

    I was told that the only way to cook roosters after about 24 weeks is to stew them to reduce the toughness. When looking up recipes for the smoker it said that the long smoking also reduces toughness. Would this work and if so, any recipes? [​IMG] Any and all advise would be greatly appreciated!!! TIA
