Hello SMF:
I smoked a couple of birds over the weekend for a co-worker who said he would like a couple of chickens. I brined the birds in salt and brown sugar overnight. then in the morning I dried the chickens and spatchcocked (butterflied) the birds. I coated with Salt Pepper Onion Garlic (SPOG) on the underside and the skin and under the skin. then I put on Bradley racks and put a bed of fresh herbs underneath them and a drip pan under the Bradley racks. I smoked at 220 for 3 hours and in the oven at 400 for 20 minutes. what resulted was a house that smelled wonderful and a couple of birds to be proud of!

Season with SPOG and fresh herbs after a spatchcock...

Yes, those are some good looking birds. Any leftover? My wife and I were just trying to decide what is for dinner.

Looks amazing!!! But was the skin eatable? I have tried chicken and turkey multiple times on the smoker, even on a rotisery and even running the temps high at the end the skin was tough and not really eatable.
