First whole chicken

Discussion in 'Grilling Chicken' started by ckelly02, Apr 10, 2016.

  1. Got my first whole chicken butterflied and soaking in a brine. Plan on smoking at 225 using hickory chips until i reach 165 and ill finish it on the grill to crisp up the skin. Any tips or suggestions? Will post pictures later today. Thanks for any advice[​IMG]

    If you're going to crisp on the grill, pull the chicken at 155ish then finish on the grill to 165.

    With your chicken spatchcocked (butterflied), and brined, I would prefer a temp closer to 300+. It will cook faster and will finish with lots more moisture.

    Good luck and good smokin', Joe

  5. Couldn't get a picture right off the grill before we started digging in. But here's the best I could do
