Smoked chicken with pics

For those that eat primal, or try to, Sam's now sells organic free range chicken. Or at least the one close to me does in north tx. Anyway, mid cook, I go outside to check on everything, and I see smoke EVERYWHERE. Very spooky with Halloween around the corner. Has something similar happened to anyone else? Smoked the chickens at 350 for a little over an hour, raised indirect. Turned out delicious though.

    My guess would be that some of the chicken fat got on the hot coals and smoldered a good bit, that will put of some white dense smoke.  Did it smell acrid like burned grease or more like wood smoke?

  • @NibbleMeThis Smelled like wood smoke. I had an oval stone beneath the chickens, but I suppose that wouldn't catch all the drippings. I put a handful of apple chips in before I put the chickens in.
