Smoking Whole Chicken

I'm doing my second smoked chicken today, first one turned out great.
I spatchcocked it and brined it over night. I dried it and rubbed it and now its hanging out with the drumsticks in the fridge for another hour until I'm ready to start smoking it.
Does anyone have a preference on breast side up or breast side down during smoking? Last time I kept the breast side up
