I posted this over in the monthly challenge. Tried out smoking on a new kamado style grill for the first time with yard bird. Had sauteed spinach tossed with parm and some carrots glazed with rosemary and thyme.    
I decided about a week ago after some reading to pick up a new charcoal grill. This style of grill is called a kamado grill, which I understand is basically a Japanese word for an earthen wood fired stove or oven. A popular example is the "Big Green Egg". Last night I did the burn in, so I decided with the monthly challenge coming to a close that I should give this thing a run through on it's smoking abilities - so the victim for the first trial run was a chicken.

 Pickles and vodka of course!
@penguinette-de welcome to the challenge! You guys must have a blast cooking together.. you've got all the bases covered.. bread maker, charcuterie, rabbit slayer   When I was twelve I met one of my best friends. He had migrated from Moscow, and spoke only a little English but I was fascinated by the idea of a kid my age that literally was in Russia a week before. We would eat lunch together (he put ketchup on everything haha) and eventually I asked if he wanted to come...
