    I've smoked many a chicken...usually smoke 325ish...  This was on the ND mini WSM i made...similar to Dirt Saylors chicken smoke but no Spatchcock...(Dang it's fun saying that word) LOL.   Anyways i needed to see what the mini was capable of so i seasoned the bird and threw it right on and let er rip with both vents fully open. The basket was less than half full and i put in a 50/50 chimney to start with several small hickory chunks. The mini slowly climbed to around 375ish... i didn't have the Maverick in but still a good estimate from the analog gauge.  TBS was steadily screaming the whole smoke, 90 minutes later comes a tasty, crisp skinned and juicy bird.  

     My mini is set up like a drum smoker letting the drippings go right down to the hot coals...Super happy with the chicken test on it, i highly recommend making one.

    Yep thanks Red... It's legit that's for sure.  To top it off it was probably less than 50 cents of fuel.
