First time smoking Beer Can Chicken on my WSM

  1. Hi,
    I have a new 18.5 WSM and it is my first smoker. I am new to smoking and have tried ribs on it a few times and came out good. Yesterday I tried Beer Can Chickens on it. I brined them first and then applied a rub. I got my smoker up to temp and then tossed in 3 chunks of Apple Wood. They tasted great and were very juicy. They didn't last long as company ate them up and said they were the best and juiciest they have eaten. Beginners luck I guess! Lol. Any comments or recommendations on how to do my next couple would be greatly appreciated. A new recipe for brining, rub and or dipping sauce.

  3. Good lookin birds. My goto is inject with creole butter and rub down with plowboys yard bird rub. I also don't bother with the beer. I just use the stands.
