  1. Hello need some info please.  The men are doing two brined 6 lb  chickens in the smoker tomorrow.  Any suggestions on time and at what temp. to do them on. 

    Thanks.
     
  2. I do my chickens at about 225-250.  I don't mind the soft skin that it gets because I remove it.  6lb chickens are big......You are looking for an internal temp on the breast meat of 165F and the thigh at 170F.  Timing is dependent on temp.  Maybe 3 hours?

    I agree with PadronMan, other than if ya want a crispy skin..... Pull it off the smoker a few degrees shy of the target IT, Pman give ya the safe IT's...., put them on a charcoal grill or even a gasser at 325-350* for a few to crisp up the skin... All personal preference when it comes to skin..... Some like it & some don't... Just my 2 cents ! :beercheer:
     
  4. Yep Agree with above.  Use your grill to get that crispy skin and enjoy!!! 

    For a moister chicken and more flavor try making a compound butter using your rub and rub under the breast skin!!  Makes it juicy and gets that rub flavor on the actual meat.
