    I go with 275-300 when I'm cooking my chicken. Usually take it to 180 dark 160-165 for white but don't check my dark typically... go by feel and time. I know that at a hour plus in butter it's up over 150 and then take and crisp afterwards.

    The picture looks good. I got some 1/4 going on this Tuesday.
  3. Thanks smokinadam...
    I pulled it at 170 and put it under the broiler for a few minutes to crisp the skin...worked out great...

    Nice looking Chick , and the temps. were spot on , so you must have to cook to well also ,Case  [​IMG]

    I cook @ 225*F to 250*F(it dosn't use the Wood as fast at this Temps. ) .

    They're left to rise to 165*F to 170*F , then pulled ,wrapped and rested .

    Have fun and . . .

    I cook mine similar to dirt. If time allows I'll give an hour of smoke at low temps before cranking it up in the 300s
