Smoked Bird

  1. I smoked my first whole chicken and my first attempt at drumsticks. Both turned out excellent.
    I cooked them both between 240-260, 2 hours for drumsticks and 4 hours for the whole bird.
    I removed the spine from the whole chicken to help cook more evenly. This didn't turn out to bad for a first timer

    I'd say you did great for a first whole bird!  Removing the backbone (spatchcocking) is a great way to smoke them for sure.

    Keep it up and show us more soon!

    Beautiful chicken you got there!     If it tastes only half as good as it looks, it will be delicious.
