    So me being a newbie I have a few questions.

    The first thing I want to smoke is a whole chicken with apple wood chips with my new MES 30.  Is there anything I should know or is there a special way I should prep the bird?  Temp and were should I stick the meat probe?

    Thanks for all of your help!

    In the MES I would run the temp as high as it goes, spatch the chick and put the probe in the breast and pull once the temp reaches 165 IT.

    What temp?  I have many say they cook it at 225 yet others state no lower than 250-275.

    I do 275 but you can smoke at what ever temp you want.
