Hi Everyone.. thank you all for the wonderful welcome !!. The chicken was my second smoking attempt (first chicken), and I had a lot of heat problems with my unit. So looks like mods are coming, thanks to some help from a nice lady in Lousiana === THANKS === . I have a Grillsmith charcoal water smoker (sometimes sold as Kingsford), very similar to brinkman ECB only accept that mine came with a grate for the coals, and lid has a proper thermometer, and vent.
Since I am new at smoking I used little wood chips, so I can gauge flavour with out being too over powering. The charcoal I used is Natures Grilling. The briquettes themselves give off a mild smoke,. The bird was sitting in there for a long time around 6 hrs.. and eventually had to finish it in on my grill. I used a Montreal style chicken spice on it and used a 1/2 can of moosehead Canadian lager beer. Despite the long time and heat issues, it turned out pretty tasty with a light smoky flavour. My little one is not so keen on it, but the queen liked it.
I look forward to learning more as I continue on a new journey in flavour country.
