    If you have the time it would be good to brine the bird for at least an hour here is a link for a great brine

    Here is Shooter Ricks Rub recipe that is a staple in our house

    3/4 cup raw sugar
    ¼ cup sea salt
    1tbs red pepper flakes
    1tbs garlic powder
    1tbs onion powder
    1tbs Hungarian Paprika
    2 tsp all spice
    1 tsp black pepper course
    1 tsp oregano
    1 tsp thyme
    1 tsp Wasabi powder
    1 tsp cumin

    Coat the chicken well and smoke at 275 until the bird hits 165 in the breast
