    hey hand i would probably do the middle rack and just watch the temps everyone now says poultry is fine to pull at 165 deg...im old school and i like to take mine to 175-180 but if you do this u would be fine.....good luck and happy smoking
     
  3. Thax doc this is my first time smoking a whole chicken i soaked in a brine then put a chicken rub on the chicken i hope it turns out

    Anything else in there? Poultry must be placed on the lowest rack for health concerns. Keep yer temps up...better skin will result, and a safer smoke!

    But if theres nothing above it, the top rack would be hottest, correct???

    Depends kinda... mine tends to be hotter on the lower... Don't suppose he's checked out the temp differentials to know tho, eh?
