What smoker are you using?

My smokers are direct heat.

I don't soak the chips.

Your spatched chicken is going to cook quicker than your whole bird. As far as times, what temp are you going to run your smoker? For poultry I run mine around 325-350 most the times. A spatched bird takes a hour and some change whole birds hour and a half.-2 hours. With that said I cook poultry till it hits the Proper IT. 165 in the thigh or breast.
