    Well I am sure we will hear, but chicken shouldn't need that amount of time to get done. Maybe 3 to 3 1/2 hours tops will do a chicken. Remember with 3-2-1 you are usually breaking down fatty meats, which chicken does not have alot of. At any rate, good luck.

    well i just hit 3 hours and my thighs are not at 180 yet
    they are at 160

    maybe a 3-1-1 will do it after the foil

    heck, my wife makes me do chicken to 180º internal all the time, but it is considered done at 165º. She wants it DONE!!
    At anyrate keep a close eye on it once foiled, temps will rise quickly. Maybe give it a spritz too, to help keep it moist.

    Oh please, I hope you weren't thinking I was slamming you. I just know a chicken is usually done in 3 to 3 1/2 hours, so paint me as concerned, but no slam. If it worked for you great, you found a new recipe to use for future chickens. [​IMG]

    ok heres the final deal....will i do it again? hell yes

    was it good oh yea

    after 3 hours at 220* the thigh was at 160.... foiled the chix...i opened all the vents and got my UDS to 320 or so and let them go for another hour. after that hour i opened the foil and sauced the chicken and cooked it on for about 30 minutes with the vents wide open and cooking the sauce on

    i thought that the chicken may be dry but surprisingly it was great....i will do this again[​IMG]
