Easy Smoked Whole Chicken on the Weber Smokey Mountain
There’s no reason to be intimidated by the task of smoking a big ole whole chicken on a Weber Smokey Mountain smoker.
Servings 1 chicken
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.
