Three Chickens!

I have three chickens in brine and I am wondering how long they will take at say 325-350 and do you think direct or indirect with a plate setter? Going to stand them up in some pie pans. I was way off before on my Turkey so I figure I better ask.

    Raised indirect - platesetter legs up, grill, pans on grill.  I don't know cooking time, but googling up recipes for roast chicken should give you an idea.  I'd think about rotating them a half turn every half hour.

    If in "pans" you are indirect.

    I always go direct / 400 / raised / spatchcocked and a hair under an hour

    Salado TX Egg Family: 2 Large and a very well used Mini, added a Mini Max (I'm good for now).

    +1 with Mickey.  Check out the below link for spatchcock info (and lots of other great ceramic cooker materials): 
    Louisville;  L & S BGEs, PBC, Lang 36; Burnin' wood in the neighbourhood. # 38 for the win.  Life is too short for light/lite beer.

    imageWell I did them indirect at 350 degrees for about 2 hrs and 15min. with Arther Bryants rub and some Sierra Mist in the pan on Chicken Stands. They came out beautiful as you can see and the wife was a happy camper.
