I smoke birds all the time ..cook 325, never brine and they always turn out incredible. This weekend I took the drum to friends for a cook out and decided to spatchcock 3 birds vs whole. ...No I didn't have my camera but you've seen enough of my chickens)))
Long story short cooking chickens over coals produces a lot of smoke with all that grease but with 3 spatchcocked birds it looked like smoke from a forest fire coming out the vents...LOVED IT!!
I always get good smoke flavor but spatchcocking took it to a whole other level. Moral of the story..UDS owners spatch your birds!!!
