    Smoked whole chicken

    Smoked a 4.5lb chicken today. Rubbed with a little cooking oil and coated with Huskee's Rib Rub 2 hrs prior, which contains salt. Smoked at ~325 for about 2 hrs, using charcoal to start the fire then apple logs after they've burned down toward embers.

    Here's a video clip of the sizzle just before I pulled it off.

      The breasts. I spatchcocked it backwards, I got in a hurry and started chopping with my scissors while talking to my kids before realized what I was doing I was cutting the breastbone. [Insert "I meant to do that" comment here]
      So I finished it upside down. I like the correct way better now that I've done both

      Thanks :-)

    Right or wrong, just a technicality. If it tasted half as good as it looks makes no difference how you got it done
