    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.

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

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

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

    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.

    started a topic 2 whole chickens

    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?

Use Our Links To Help Keep Us Alive

A big part of this site is our unbiased equipment and product reviews. We love playing with toys and we have no problem calling them the way we see them. Some companies pay a finder’s fee if a reader clicks a link on AmazingRibs.com and buys a product. It has zero impact on our reviews, zero impact on the price you pay, and the sites never tell us what you bought, but it has a major impact on our ability to keep this site alive!

Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One


The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker


This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.

The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.
