Fireman Jake,

Is that Old Bay seasoning I see on one of those chickens?

1 chicken has a cajun spice rub on it and the other has a lemon-pepper seasoning on it. I've never smoked a whole chicken (or any chicken for that matter) - so it'll be interesting to see how it turns out!

Chickens are now at 180 degrees - I think it's safe to pull 'em.

That's the worst part of this whole day - - none of this is for today - it is all for Saturday!!! So, my lesson learned for thr day - - always, I mean always throw something on the smoker to eat today - no matter when you are smokin for.

I smoked all that - and I end up with ham sandwiches for dinner? Noooooo!

Now that just ain't right!! I like to toss in some bratwurst or some Italian Sausage when I'm smoking. Put a couple in at the start, add a couple of more an hour later-flip the first ones over, another hour later check the temps of the first ones & pull 'em if there done, flip the second batch over and add a couple of more. Be snacking good all during the smoke and ya' don't have to share unless ya' get caught! :mrgreen:
