    Just Kidding.

    I love smoking whole chickens !

    My recipe:

    I like to inject chicken 1st.

    I use 3/4 apple juice and 1/4 white wine for injection.

    Make sure you inject thighs and wings also.

    I then use a simple dry rub of : garlic powder / salt / pepper / thyme.

    I smoke using apple wood - about every 30-45 minutes I will inject bird again.

    I like to keep my temp. low around 200 degrees.

    After smoking let sit and enjoy. I like dipping in BBQ when eating

    good luck !

    Basically what Capt does, but I like to play around with more spices. That and I use a beer can cooker in the smoker. Reds apple ale is worth a try!
