    Cook Times for Whole Chicken?

    I saw two schools of thought when it comes to smoking a whole chicken. One had it hot and fast at 375 for an hour. The second was at 225 for two hours, then crank it up to 325 for 15 minutes. Any feedback on methods would be appreciated.

    Kettle Yard bird with the Vortex

    Another cook with the new toy. I had not done a beer can Chicken in at least 5 years. Since getting the Vortex and seeing posts about using it for Infer-red cooking, I thought I would give it a try with beer can chicken. I put a foil pan under to catch the drippings and keep the kettle clean...

    Vortex whole chicken

    Well, it was very windy here in the Northeast today, but at least it was sunny and pleasantly warm. The wife was babysitting our grandson, so I decided to fire up the kettle and make some chow. I hadn't done a whole chicken in quite some time, and the local grocer had some that looked pretty...

    Cuban Chicken

    I had a good deal on a chicken and I have been meaning to try a different method of cooking chicken. I know many others have done this but it is new to me. I was going to start low and slow and then kick the heat. I have also been meaning to try a Cuban flavour profile on chicken. I will admit...

    Whole Chicken Brine

    Hey all, I hope I'm not beating a dead horse here, but I have a question regarding whole chickens and brining them. I'm planning on smoking two spatchcocked chickens this coming Sunday and I was wondering; Is it 100% necessary to brine these birds first? If I don't, what are the potential...

Started digging around as to what to do and have read a lot of issues with the MES producing rubbery skin because it can't get over 275F and I've read you need 325F to get decent skin. Is that right...

    Ive had a whole chicken in the smoker now for about 5 hours. 6.2 lb bird. Smoker at 225°. Chicken hasnt budged from 143° in over an hour. I did brine it over night last night.
