Jr I just flew back tonight from tx and my mom picked me up from ewr. I brought her to local smoke for dinner and she was really impressed.
I ordered her the half bird but they were sold out. I got her the pulled chicken, mac n cheese and chili brussell sprouts. She jokingly said "wow I don't know why I will cook for your dad anymore when this is so close"....lol.
So you're right as usual....pay extra but get some good juicy chicken. So mom is officially a local smoke fan! My stomach was kind of whacked out I think from some duck tacos in san antonio so I just went for a few delicious smoked jalapeños.
