First whole chicken

  1. My first try at a whole chicken. Local store had them 50% off. Did one for bbq pulled chicken and one for my wife to make her chicken salad. Put them in a brine last night.
    BBQ Chicken:
    After removing from brine I covered it in BBQ rub. Didn't put any oil on it first, since I was pulling it apart wasn't concerned about the skin.

    Chicken for salad:
    After removing from brine covered it with a all purpose rub.
    Cooked them at 240 for 4 1\2 hours. Used apple wood. Didn't use much wood, wanted a hint of smoke taste.
    Was very pleased with results. Very moist. Made a great sammich.
