So my bro beat me to the punch on the first smoked chickens. These were a pair of 4 pounders he did with no brine, and a brown sugar heavy rub. He did them 4 hrs up to 180 with mostly cherry smoke and a little mesquite. They were AMAZING for our first birds. We saved the juices to make gravy and flavor some beans. Paired it with broccoli cranberry slaw...good stuff. Nice job, Bro!
