    For a guy who's never smoked before, what would be some good chicken ideas?  I found Jeff's Honey Barbecue Smoked Chicken Wings recipe.  This looks sooooooo good.  The smoked buffalo chicken thread also looks interesting:

    Would that be a good idea?  Pickup some wings & legs/thighs, and try something along these lines?  Or should I go with a whole chicken?

    Pieces are easier to get right than a whole chicken for a newbie.  Boneless pieces smoke faster than the bone-in.  I beer can whole chickens, but not so much for the moisture.  They seem to cook more evenly for me.  Higher temperature works best for a crispy skin, 325F+. 

    You can't go wrong following the Jeff's recipes so have fun!

    Is there a conversion for temps and cook times between bone in and boneless chicken.
