Slow smoked chicken is real nice and moist. Makes great pulled chicken sandwiches. Sometimes the skin will get dark and rubbery (at least in a charcoal smoker) . I'll be curious how you like it when you're done. You really can't go wrong , tho. Low and slow or hot and fast that chicken meat gonna taste awesome.

Howdy Swede,

I usually do chickens at least at 275 but closer to 300 and cook to an IT of 165 on the breast and leg.

The reason for the higher temperature is so that the skin gets nice a crispy!  Otherwise your skin is kind of rubbery and inedible.

Good luck,

Bill

Boy is it juicy and tender... But one thing for sure It is not a chicken it is a broiler. It have a more robust taste and not the young chicken taste, but it is soo good.
