Momma came home with 2 small chickens and informed me I was going to smoke them this weekend. Cool, I haven't done a whole chicken yet, and have been wanting to. For the sake of comparison, I'm going to spatchcock one, and beer can the other. These chickens are small , 4.5 lbs, the other one 4.3 lbs. Are these chickens even big enough to get a beer can in? They look awful small. Home Depot has a beer can chicken roaster for less than 5 bucks, I was going to pick one up, but then noticed how small these chickens are.
