  1. Any recommendations for temperature and time for a couple of fryer chickens (beer can) in the MES 40?

    I do not have a MES, but when I smoke chicken I smoke at higher temps in order to get crispy skin.  I go to about 275-300

    They usually take about 20-30 minutes per pound at 225. Use a temp probe & when the thickest part of the breast is 165 & the thickest part of the thigh is 175 they are done.
