Smoking some chicken halves!

  1. Just put on some chicken halves seasoned with a sweet and smoky rub. My Cajun Injector electric smoker only goes to 275, so I'm gonna have to crisp the skin under the broiler. I think they're gonna turn out nicely. Pics to follow.

    Great job! The chicken looks delicious! By the way, I like the sausage hangers.

    Chicken looks great! I've been doing chicken at lower temps too lately. On the mini I'll shoot for 275°-300°, take them to temp, let em rest for 15-20 minutes then put em skin down over the coals to crisp the skin. In the oven I'll bake them at 275°, then rest and put under the broiler. I really like the way the dark meat comes out with a little slower cook. Always did higher heat (325°-350°) before, but it's fun to try different things.
     
  11. Thanks! I can eat chicken just about any way it's cooked. I used some hickory on these and it had a good flavor. I wondered if it might be a little much, but it was pretty good.
