    Well there it is my sat. Dinner. The abts were out of this world i never had them before and did not realize how great they are. They will def ve a once a week thing from now on. For the chicken, my smoker had a mind of its own today and did not want to get up over 250 no matter what i did so at about 1 1/2hr mark i took out my water pan and opened her up all the way. And bam therr was the 325 i was looking for. The brest meat on the chciken tured out a tad dry but the rest of it was super moist and i must say it was one of the best chickens ive had in a long time!!

    I really need to get some jalapeños in the ground. Man those ABT's look tasty! I wouldn't turn down those birds either!

    I normally pickle 90% of my jalepenos but i was saw that everyone on here makes these abts. Now i know why they make them!!! And we do alot of chicken around my house my kids refuse to eat red meat (2 girls ages 3&5). My wife and i love to use whatever smoked chicken we have left over and make chicken salad it has that snokey flavor in the back round.. soooo good

    Great combo, ABT's are great with anything.

    The chicken was prepacked with a rub already on it. All it said on the packing was bbq rub. The rub wasent very heavy more like a lite dusting and to my surprise it was actually pretty good not very salty at all and just a tiny bit of heat

    What was you total cook time for those half chickens? They look super tasty. I am planning on smoking some half chicken later this week and have never smoked chicken before. How can you help them stay moist?

    Wow this looks great.  I wanted to make some ABTs tomorrow but didnt know what to make with them!  Still deciding but this looks like a win!

    The chickens took right around 3 1/2 hrs but like i said the first two were around 225° then i got the heat up to 300°

    You can prob wrap them in some bacon that would help keep them moist. Whenever i do halved or whole chicken the only part that ever get dry is the breast and it only sometimes and that being a tad dry doesnt bother me because i like to pick the meat from everywhere else on the bird anyways!
