Smoked Whole Chicken Today. :D

OK, I'm smoking a whole chicken today. I brined the chicken overnight in chicken stock for extra flavor and added garlic, black pepper, and whole onion chunks to the solution. I'm using my brown sugar rub on the skin, and have stuffed the cavity with apple chunks and a bit of onion.

Oh, and I forgot the secret....Orange marmalade added on top of the rub, and the mop sauce is the left over rub and marmalade and butter.

5 hrs at 220 for a 5 pound chicken.

I love doing whole chickens on my Webber kettle, though not a true smoker it does the job admirably.

Oh yeah, it displaces the saline they pump up commercial chickens with. The bird just went into the smoker, just now, and I'm smoking it with hickory wood chunks.

I decided to add a bit of white Zinfandel to the mop sauce. Getting better and better smelling, too.

If you have a webber, you can turn it into a passable smoker. I've been doing it for about a year now.

It's a good wine for cooking, not drinking. We'll have a really nice crisp Riesling with dinner tonight for the drinking part.

Actually, its not the worse for drinking. If you add it about 50/50 to lemonade, it makes a passable "cooler" for those warm summer evenings. But I'd much rather have a nice red wine.

And for cooking a chicken? I'd probably go with a good Chablis.

Now using almost exclusively wood for the final hour. Internal temp is 148, so all's on track



Progress at the 3 hour point



and the 4 hour point

One of the many good things about chicken that delicious is that you can eat it like a pirate and not use any utensils at all.

If not a commercial chicken, what kind is it? Did you raise it yourself?

It is a commercial chicken, which was why I brined it in chicken stock......to displace the saline injected into the bird.

Final results...sorry for the indoor lighting, but my Handicam doesn't have a flash, it's a videocamera I'm using for the stills.
