1st time smoking chicken

I have never smoked a chicken before on my BGE.  Wondering if anyone has any suggestions/tips for me.  I have a whole chicken, wings and thighs.  Going to try something new on the mother-in-law for her birthday.  Could be bad.

    Spatchcock, the best chicken in the world. Have done I using Greek spices and lemon/pepper, both most excellent.

    Welcome aboard and you will enjoy the BGE.  Playing the role of the "frictionless conduit" here's a link to the above mentioned spatchcock chix:

  • That depends on how much you like your mother-in-law. If the answer is "not so much", coat the bird in peanut butter and place directly on the coals for 1hr...
