approx time for chicken?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I'm thinking about maybe doing a chicken or two tomorrow ... what's the approximate time for smoking a bird? I realize it'll depend on weight and whatnot, but a ballpark idea would be nice so that I'm not eating at 3:00 AM!

An advocate of smoke to temp, not time, but if it was me, I'd plan of about 4 hours of smokin time. Build in an extra hour for wiggle room.

Depending on size and temp of smoker, 3 -4 hours just my HO though.
I would go no more than 165" and foil.
Good luck.

I like to rinse my bird in hot water and then dry it before I put it the smoker. Cuts down on some time.Small whole fryers....about 3 hrs.
