I'm going to smoke two ~ 6 pound chickens today in my MES 30 using a ET-732. Typically a chicken takes 30 - 40 minutes a pound to reach 165, but I have only smoked 1 at a time. Is smoking two 6 pound chickens like smoking one 12 pound chicken from a time perspective? Ie...one 6 # would take 3--4 hours, but a 12 # would take twice as long or more to reach IT 165. I'm trying to plan my start time. I'm thinking I would still be in the 3-4 hour time frame, since it is separate weights, but wanted to verify since I'm pretty new to this.
Secondly, do you guys apply smoke the entire time?
