If you have the time it would be good to brine the bird for at least an hour here is a link for a great brine


Here is Shooter Ricks Rub recipe that is a staple in our house


3/4 cup raw sugar
¼ cup sea salt
1tbs red pepper flakes
1tbs garlic powder
1tbs onion powder
1tbs Hungarian Paprika
2 tsp all spice
1 tsp black pepper course
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp thyme
1 tsp Wasabi powder
1 tsp cumin

Coat the chicken well and smoke at 275 until the bird hits 165 in the breast
