Chicken little help

    I have never smoked a chicken and am currently thawing one out for tomorrow, or Sat.  It has been in the freezer for quite a long time - maybe a year or more...  Seems to be looking pretty good with a little freezer burn around the wing tips.  Anyone have an idea on if this is just to long for a small bird before I spend some time with it in the smoker?

    Any input would be much appreciated!

    If there is only a little on the wing tips I would think it would be fine.  Are you going to brine it?

    I am still doing my research, but was not thinking a brine for the first one.  I am definatley open for input as I have the day off tomorrow and should be able to put some time in to make it work.
