Local Chicken Throw-Down

Now that I have properly introduced myself, I am looking for suggestions on a whole chicken smoke. We have a friendly throw-down scheduled in a couple of weeks at the local pub. I am looking for a sure fire way to win this thing. I was thinking beer can but am undecided on the flavoring method. Whether to brine, baste, rub or inject, any info would be greatly appreciated!

Welcome aboard GGski from the Greater Metropolitan Detroit Area Smokers.

As far as your smoked chicken throwdown, use the holder (if you have one) for the beer can, but skip the beer. It is better used to cool down the cook. By standing the bird on the holder, you get the heat and the smoke up in the cavity for a better smoke/cook. Or you can spatchcock it, cut out the backbone and lay the whole bird flat to cook. You can brine it for a few hours, I like mine simple, salt, sugar and garlic powder, but the details can be yours.

Just a few suggestions.
