My first attempt at smoking a whole chicken went over like gangbusters!!!

First off, I am grilling with the electric Old Smokey, so this may not jive with charcoal, gas and/or smokers with vent and exhaust.

Whole Chicken was 4.32 lbs. Gave it a good homemade rub (found here: http://www.texascooking.com/recipes/dryrub.htm) and smoked it with a handful of water-soaked apple chips at 225*. It took exactly one hour to reach 180* internal. I lifted off and rested in foil for 1/2 hour.

My wife and I devoured it (mostly me). It was the juiciest chicken I have ever eaten in my life.

Old Smokey rules!

Ain't it great when the king rocks his castle?! Glad to hear it went good for ya, if you gotta eat chicken - juicey is the way to go. Give Old Smokey a big thumbs up when you pass him by :)

Keep Smokin
