Several Whole Birds
Wood Chips and Coals
Soak birds for 24 hours in a brine of water, soy sauce, liquid smoke, and garlic salt.
Remove birds and truss with bamboo skewer.
Make slice along breast bone and insert 1/2 piece of bacon along each side.
Wrap birds with bacon.
Smoke birds over a charcoal smoker for 4 hours at approx 200 degrees or so.
Remove birds and completely debone - go ahead and scrape all the meat off. Try not to eat all the breast meat (it will taste good, though) and save some fo remainder of recipe.
Place meat in large crockpot with BBQ sauce and your choice of additional seasonings.
I like mine spicy, so I throw in some hot sauce.
Heat on high until hot, and then turn to low for 4 hours.
Stir every 45 minutes or so to break up meat.
Now, you can eat some now over buns or just plain. Make a lot and freeze the remainder in small portions. Trust me, it is a crowd pleaser if you break out a container of this in the blind or in the field at lunchtime.
