We had Uno the capon as our Thanksgiving dinner, and yes indeed, he was tasty. For those who may not recall, here is Uno out on the grass:

Uno plucked and dressed out beautifully. My postal scale only goes up to five pounds, so I don't have a weight for him, but he was well-fleshed and had a generous amount of rich golden-yellow fat on him. Here he is on the smoker:

For those curious, dinner was rounded out with baked sweet potatoes, broccoli casserole (frozen from grocery store broccoli, as our plants out in the garden aren't ready yet), cranberry sauce, and homemade dinner rolls. Dessert was baked pumpkin cheesecake, and was served a couple hours before dinner to give the rolls enough rising time. It's a good thing we ate dessert first - no one had room for anything else after the dinner! That was my first baked cheesecake, and I probably should have gotten a pic, but it is just too late for that now.
