    so i made up a Memphis style dry seasoning  cut a nice chicken in half  did a simple  brine of 50/50  salt sugar  let it marinade for an hour them fired up the smoker. took the 1/2  chicken  out of the brine  patted  it dry then covered with some olive oil, then threw it on the smoker using hickory  smoked it at 275, spritzing the chicken with apple juice  every 15 min  till internal temp was 165.   then took it off the smoker and  seasoned it with the Memphis dry spice blend  came out really tasty juicy  and that lovely hickory flavor  to the meat
