The first one i did i brined, injected with butter i believe, rubbed skin with a bit of oil and some spices. Turned out decent. Was on a gmg Daniel boone, which went back to gmg for temp issues they couldn't solve.

There is no one (1) answer to your questions, the options are too numerous.
Whole or spatchcocked?
Brined or not?
Butter under the skin?
Baste?

Easiest, quickest and best results in my opinion.
Spatchcock
Inject with a tasty marinade and rub on the entire bird
Smoke over hickory at a minimum of 275°, preferably higher 350°-375°
It's done when you've safe IT.
