Whole Chicken
« on: February 02, 2013, 12:13:51 pm »
 Well, I was going to get a pork belly curing to smoke next weekend but the butcher is out until Tuesday. So I picked up a fresh whole chicken I am going to smoke today. I dont have time to brine but I think I will be alright. Been looking a the IT for this bird (5lbs), am I safe to say an IT of 160f is good? Or should I go a little higher?

That's gonna be good. Are you gonna put it elsewhere to crisp up the skin?

 Are you kidding? This bird is going to be sweating like a pig ;D in a few hours. Then under the broiler it goes. Come on now, you really think I would smoke a whole chicken and not have crispy skin? Is there any other way?  ;D

I'm thinking that next time I smoke a whole chicken, after the smoke, I'm going to throw it in a turkey fryer for about 3-5 mins to crisp up the skin.  What do y'all think about that idea?
