    smoking? I'm thinking of buying myself a smoker for Christmas. I love smoked turkey & chicken, and thought it might be a good way to fix an older DP rooster, but don't know if this qualifies as slow cooking. I normally roast my birds, but this would be a yummy change and great gifts if they wouldn't turn out to tough.

    I have no experience with using a smoker, but seems like it should work on an older bird. How long does the smoking process take? Why not do one and send it to me for a test test? [​IMG] I'll be objective and honest. [​IMG]

    I think it takes about 8-10 hours, so I would think that would work out OK, but was hoping someone had done some already.

    If you post this question on the social/recipes forum, I bet you would get a ton of adivce and recommendations. They have some terrific cooks that post on there and there have been some wonderful smopking meats threads. They have convinced me that I need to get a smoker ...

    OH, good idea, I never thought of that, I just thought the meat people would be the right ones to ask. Thanks
