Setup to smoke my first chicken tomorrow.  Did a little searching on the forum and opted to go with DougE's brine suggestion:

Slaughterhouse Poultry Brine By Tip Piper of Hillbilly Vittles
1 ½ Gal Water
½ C Salt - Kosher
½ C Dark Brown Sugar
2 tsp Garlic Powder
2 tsp Onion Powder
2 tsp Cajun Spice (Louisiana Cajun Seasoning)
2 tsp Celery Seed

The bird is soaking now and I'll toss it on the smoker sometime around 1pm.  I plan to try and smoke some beef ribs at the same time.....wish me luck

Here are some pics from dinner last night:





the sausages were a sweet turkey sausage from Aldi, the ribs were center cut beef.  I ended up smoking the chicken for ~4 hrs.  Unfortunately, I got a late start and my family had already eaten dinner - looks like chicken tonight though!!!!  I did try a few cuts from it and the taste was great

That chick has some beautiful color and that brine you used should satisfy the taste buds!  Great smoke!
