best chicken ever

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I tried smoking an 8 pound chicken today in my new smoke vault.I got a late start on it so I decided to cut out the backbone and butterfly it. Then peel back the skin to apply my rub on the meat then roll it back to season the top. I put the chicken on the center rack in the smoke vault and smoked it using a combination of apple and hickory chips at 300 degrees.2 1/2 hours later I took it out at a temp of 175.I have to say and my family agrees it was some of the best chicken we ever ate.

I was told once no pics and it didn't happen. But great job and I too love smoked chicken. Next time try two leftovers and smoked chicken salad rock.

Welcome to the spatchcock society.PDT_Armataz_01_12.gificon_smile.gif

For those of you that haven't tried spatching a are missing out.

My only other advice is to brine that sucker overnight in a little sugar water combined with your favorite rub (plain salt works fine, too).

Sounds good but it looks a little pale and bland. Very unpleasing to the eye... Need some qview..
