Gonna help a buddy out and smoke about 4-5 whole birds for him for a party. He said he is gonna shoot for 5# birds. My questions to the masses that have done birds before are these:
1) What temps do you cook your birds at?
2) How long should I estimate based on the temp given in #1?
I've always done pork and beef and cooked at 250, but wondered if I should use higher temps for chicken to get the skin crisper and because you don't need the low and slow with chicken like you do with most other things.
