    2 whole chickens

    My first time trying this. I didn't know if I had to flip them, so I flipped one of them. They were salt seasoned and injected for a few hours, then rubbed with Weber Smokey Mesquite rub I think it's called.




    the flame up only happened when I opened lid..

    They've been in about an hour @ 225-235, first time I get that constant low temp. I did arrange the coals better before smokenator, usually I just throw 48 in there randomly. The coal grate always ends up slipping on me though

    We're at 126, I'm guessing I pull them off when breast are @ 160? expecting carry over?

    Father87 Yes pull when between 160-165. I'd recommend cooking them at 325-360 though. I've even done 380-390 with good results. You'll get a better crispier skin and the faster cook will guarantee you a much juicier meat.

      Oh ok. How do you do it? Just an indirect side or the snake method?

        And try placing the legs towards the heat source. Legs are better at high temp than breast.

          You're so right. I knew that too but didn't come to mind, inexperience.

        Here are two chickens I salted 12 hours before smoking and refrigerated in an uncovered aluminum pan. Sprayed both sides with Pam, then put them on the smoker at 250 degrees for 3 hours. Internal temperature was 170.
