    Rainy day here in NC and had a short time between fronts to Q this whole 6# chicken. Rubbed with oil and applied the spiced rub while the barrel was heating up. Using the beer can holder added the chicken on the holder and loaded it on. After two hours the IT of the breast meat was 164 and the thick thigh was up to 175 and pulled it to rest before carving. Finished meat was very juicy and cooked just right. Chicken salad sammies coming up this week.

    Ready to go

    Air temp started at 330 and held that for one hour, then I cut the temp back to 285 to finish off the smoke.

    Nice smoke flavor and skin was lightly crisp. Meat was very moist and quite tender.
