I smoke mine at 250º and they usually take 2½ - 4 hours depending on the size.

I try to find the smaller birds as they are more juicy and tender.

 brine several hours in salt water and brown suger mixture and smoke ~ 3 hours @ 250* to ~ 180* in the thickest part of the breast.

Coloradosmoker , the guys have given you some solid advice , however the 180* in the breast may dry it out a bit...IMHO , 165* is done for Breast and the meat stays juicier ; 180* may dry it out a bit more than you want and lead to using a lot of sauce on it icon_eek.gif.

 

Have fun with however you do it , it's all about the fun and companionship of a gathering , be it Family or just Friends beercheer.gif. Enjoy and...

I like to cook mine closer to 350 for a little over an hour.  I always look for 3-4 pound birds they are the best.  Brine, season, glaze serve.  Chicken is the most underrated meat in my opinion once you can cook it good it is a great meal at a low price.
