The Ultimate Whole Chicken Guide

Smoked Whole ChickenHow to smoke a whole chicken was one of the very first posts I did on this site.  I love chicken.  My wife loves chicken.  My kids love chicken.  My friends and family love chicken.

Apparently everyone loves chicken, because it is the most searched item, EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.

Seriously.  Every single day.  I’m not kidding.  People love birds.

So, we have put together The Ultimate Whole Chicken Guide.  This is everything you need to know about smoking a whole chicken and doing it to an extraordinary level.  We are going to keep this guide in our recipes section and update it any time we add a recipe or tip about whole chickens.  Just put your mouse over the Recipes title at the top and you will see a page for this guide.

Brine, Inject, Rub, Butter, Stuff, Smoke…posts, recipes, tips, videos…all here.

Did I just hear clapping?

Oh stop it.  Please.  Really, stop.  You’re too kind. Enjoy – and leave a comment or email me with any recipes or tips you would like to see added.
