    Used my Masterbuilt 18.5" kettle, Brined over night then drained paper towel dried, let sit on a rack dry more. Seasoned with my Chicken Season mix.

    These I took advantage of todays weather,going to snow Sunday.Tried doing an offset with KBB and Pecan smells great.

    kettle smoking to many air leaks on this one.

    Thanks for looking

    You can follow what I did, brine over night.


    1/2 C salt non iodized

    1/2 C brown sugar

     1 bay leave

    a few pepper corns

    1/2 to 3/4 gal water

    Put the chicken ( pieces,whole ) over night drain,paper towel dry let sit on a rack to dry more.

    You can add a rub if you want.

    Start your coal get it going good place on the far side away from the birds.

    Cook to an IT of 170* F you should be good

    Hope this helps post some pics when you do it

    I forgot to mention I added a few pieces of Pecan on the top of the coals.
