Default Cupcake chicken

For the inaugural run of my Bradley Digital Smoker I chose to do a riff on Myron Mixon's cupcake chicken. He came up with the idea using muffin pans to cook chicken thighs in. Provides symmetrical pieces which score points on presentation in the box. Here is his recipe: http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/fo...Chicken-365437.

Since this was for me and not for judges I didn't need to have any bone or skin. I used boneless skinless thighs. I thought that his sauce looked too sweet too. I only used 25% of the honey he called for and added some mustard sauce and some adobo sauce for heat. Since I did not have the skin I decided to make bacon cups. Viola! I used throwaway aluminium pans, lined them with thin sliced bacon, then the rubbed thighs. I smoked them with maple for 80 minutes @ 225 then flipped them and gave them 40 minutes more. I then transferred them to my high temp grill to bring them up to temp and glaze them with the blackberry mustard sauce. They may not have been as pretty as Myron's with the skin but they had an awesome taste and the bacon really helped. I'll work on this and make them again sometime!

Ready to go in the smoker:



Flipped drained and ready for glazing:

Gotcha. Actually both of those were taken with my new digicam. Not used to it yet. Also there was a difference of 3-4 hours smoke and beer between those pics!

gotcha, as a side note, I have found that on a normal point and shoot digital camera they take much better "close in" pics (like what you were taking) if you switch the camera to macro mode, as thats what its designed for. the setting uses a symbol like this

I don't have a setting that looks like that tulip. This is the camera. Which setting do you suggest that I use? http://www.samsung.com/ph/consumer/c...EC-WB100ZDMRPH

Ah, it is on a different dial! I have 3 choices: Macro, Auto macro, and Super macro. I'm guessing that "auto" is Macro For Dummies?

ok, check out pgs 55-56, looks like you have to be in P mode on the dial, then press the "tulip" which is on the bottom of the "multi button" on the back of the camera (where the screen is), to the right, then select a macro (has 3 different versions) and hit ok


leave it to samsung to make something complicated

lol, you beat me to it, yep, as long as you are more than 4 inches away from the "subject" auto macro will be fine, take one with and one without the flash, see which one turns out better.

the super macro would be nice for close in detail pics, like a single coin or stamp or something else with fine details
