    So I've got an 7.94 lb chicken in the smoker...hence the name chicken turkey. How long do you think it'll take. I've got the probe in it....but I was wondering baseline time per pound on this.

    At 225, mine usually take anywhere from 35 to 45 minutes per lb. The best test is an instant read thermometer.
  3. Sounds like a capon. For you city dwellers, that's a castrated chicken. They get huge, 7 to 11 lbs, and no matter how old they get they stay tender.
