    Last monday I decided to do a whole chicken. They were on sale for .77 a lb. The only can of drink that we had was a cherry coke zero. So I used that to shove up the chickens butt.

    I coated with my rub put it on the gosm. I wanted to try something different this time. I norm cook them at 300 for 2 - 2.5 hours. This time I cooked at 215-220 for 4 hours. Temps were well above 165 so I was a little concerned about this being dry.

    I must say that this was the most tender and flavorful chicken that we have ever had when doing it beercan chicken style.

    I only took one picture of it resting out of the smoker.

    Thanks for looking.

    That is a gorgeous color! [​IMG] Sounds delicious, between the cola and your rub it had to be good.

    That and rotisserie chicken is probably the best way to do it, although I rarely notice much difference in whatever flavor is in the can. Even without the brine, they come out moist. [​IMG]
