  • Place the chicken into a large resealable bag or container.
  • Add all of the dressing. Seal the container and gently flip to coat the chicken.
  • Refrigerate, turning every hour so, for 6 hours.
  • Fire up your smoker to cook from 225 - 250 F. Use any wood you like. I prefer a lighter wood so that my chicken doesn't overpower whatever dish I use it in. I tend to use fruit woods or hickory.
  • Remove the chicken from the container and shake off any excess dressing.
  • Season the chicken well with salt and pepper and transfer to the smoker.
  • Smoke for 3-4 hours or until the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 165 F as measured in the thickest parts.
  • Remove and let rest at least 15 minutes before carving.
