Depends on what you are smoking with ... I use my propane modified ECB at 300º to 325º until the internal temp reaches 170º or slow smoked at 250º for about 5 hours.
Hope that is useful to you ... good luck and send pix if you can.

I use a charcoal fired Weber Kettle for small smokes. The chickens are normally 3.5-4.0 lbers each. At 225 -250 degrees, usually takes 2 3/4 - 3.0 hrs. I was using a probe thermometer, but now, its all time and they always come out around 165 -170 degrees after I "plug'em". Remember, they will still cook a bit after you take them out of the smoker.

Hope this helps ya out.

2-3 hrs on my smoker, still have leather skin, but that doesn't bother me, I'm after the rest, turning up the heat or placing on a grill to crisp the skin seems to work OK.
