Help semi newbie with smoked chicken

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi, unfortunately I had to reregister with a different name, not sure what happened. Otherwise I would have posted this yesterday.

Thought after a year of my smoker purchase I would finally try chicken. I'm going to soak the chicken in a brine for several hours.

My question is this, how long per pound should I plan to smoke a whole chicken @ 225/250?

Also, I was wonering if I should try a rub also with the brine?

Thanks.

First things first you need to stop into roll call please an introduce yoirself properly. Then to your chicken just brine it and then you add your rub what ever that mite be. Then you smoke it at about 225-230 you can go as high as 300 to crisp the skin but mine does just fine. Just smoke it to about 165 in the thigh and 180 in the breast and you should be just fine. So happy smoking and go to roll call please.

Dang, 3 1/2 hours for me, but I smoke at 250 to 275ยบ. Chicken does not need low and slow.

250 degrees minimum - 300 wouldn't hurt.
