ok folks here it goes, I am new to this smoking thing, I have just purchased a Outdoor Gourmet propane smoker from Academy and itchin to get it fired up. I figured I would start with a couple beer butt chickens and see where that leads. any advise would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to the SMF rwharris! Advise on the BB chix would be if you like a good crispy skin keep the temps up to 275o or higher or you may end up with the rubber skin syndrome.

Thank you, seasoning is tonights project. I figure I would give this smoking thing a try. I am a yankee transplant living in Biloxi, so I can now boil about anything and have turkey frying down to an art. so on to bigger and better things. just figure that this smoking thing would let me enjoy the outdoors and let me drink beer while I keep an eye on the smoker.

Welcome to the SMF, glad to have you with us my friend. Keep an eye on the internal temp. of the bird(s). Smoking temp is not a big thing, if you want the skin more crisp, take the smoker temp up to 325-350, and you may want to slather some mayo on the skin. Goiod luck on that first smok!

My advice is one bite of of beer butt chicken, one drink of beer, one bite beer butt chicken, one drink of beer. Repeat over and over and over and over and over. Good luck.
