I'm doing BEER CAN CHICKEN for the first time on my SMOKING IT ELECTRIC SMOKER. I've heard both views on whether or not to brine. I would love some opinions.

Chose one and do it this time and the next day attempt it the other way. You'll learn how to maximize the need for smoking. LOL
I usually recommend the easiest first, then try the brine. No amount of brining can help a plain chicken that has been smoked badly. Learn how to do a nekkid chicken so that its delicious, then try the brine.
Try both, then make up your own mind.
Hey, you asked.
