DIRECTIONS

  • Rinse bird inside and out. Lightly pat dry the outside.
  • Rub the chocolate and coffee powder all over the skin. Place two star anise inside the cavity and divide the rest among the breast portions and the legs/thighs. Wrap the legs and wings with foil.
  • Smoke at 225 degree for 5 - 6 hours or until the bird reaches an internal temp of 180 degrees. Follow your smoker's directions.
  • Let rest for 15 minutes. Do not eat the skin. It will be extremely blacked and was there for flavoring the meat, not ingestion itself.
