Fellow smokers, This was my first attempt at smoking something. Decided on chicken as it was inexpensive (in case it got outta hand). It came out wonderfully. I did two chickens two different ways. One was brined and the other was not. Both were delicious but my wife said that the brined one was a little too salty. So since brining did not make a difference on the outcome, I won't do it again. Hopefully the pics come thru.
