Re: Smoking Split or Whole ChickensMike,
Check out the pics and posts in the poultry section called "Cornish Hens Beer Can Style" by crazyhorse and others. You can use a full size can of your favorite beer or Pop (soda / soft drink / trendy chemical refreshment) and sit the whole chicken, wings and legs tied up (if you're into that) with a drip pan underneath to catch the good stuff for gravy or whatever, and roast away. Save the cutting up (if it needs it) for after the cooking when it's easier. Rub the outside of the chicken with oil if you like and your favorite spices and smoke away!
