Welcome,
I'm new here too, and it is a great site. Just remember that you want sweet blue, not lotsa white!

Hey Jimmy,

Just jump right in and smoke that chicken. It's easy if you just check out the poultry thread and pick out one of the great ideas and try it out :D

Just to let you know that was the best Chicken I have ever eaten Nothing left but bones..The kids just kept wanting more..Actualy the skin for some reason tasted really good..I added some of my special combo of spices I use on the grill..I also did the brine too..
All the info I read helped me out greatly..took about 5 hrs for that big bird..
Thanks for the Welcome.. :D

Way to go on the chicken, Jimmy and welcome to SMF. A tip for your next chicken smoke-since chicken doesn't need "low and slow" you can increase your smoker temps to 300*. The hotter chamber will help crisp up the skin.

Enjoy!

Hello Jimmy,
I'd like to add my welcome to the Smoking Meat Forum. It's a great place to learn and visit. You'll feel right at home here. There's great BBQ reicpes from your local area (also Hash) as well as a great sampling from other parts of the country. I've been through Walterboro a number of times and had some great Q there. Again, welcome and next time, why don't you put two of those yard birds on the smoker. i
