Whole Chickens - Seeing Double
« on: March 03, 2012, 12:20:01 am »
Cooked me two whole chickens. Split them up the back bone and spread them out over the racks. About 5 hours total at 210. 2.5 hour over hickory. Seasoning is Lemon Pepper on one, Simmie J's on the other. No Brine.

What do you all do to crisp up the skin a bit?

Nice color on your chicken. To crisp up the skin, when the internal temperature hits around 140°F; transfer them to a grill, or 350 - 375°F preheate oven, or place 6" under the broiler.

I've been smoking chicken parts for 2:15 after seasoning them with lowrey's season salt.....then to a 400° oven for 15 minutes or so to finish......
