By 5:30 PM the smoking was rudely interrupted when the sky opened up into what Lynn described as "a monsoon" when she stopped by to pick up Maria's eggs to sell. We put Cappy in the oven at 350F, but all we had last night were the wings, as the wonderful aroma was just about driving us crazy. Great, most excellent flavor, but the meat had not cooked quite long enough.
Today I snapped a pic before covering Cappy up with some foil and putting him back into the oven, this time at 250F for a couple hours.

smoked and seasoned and ready for the final roast
We are really hoping Uno is a full capon, because we both want to roast a fine capon for one of the winter holidays!
