Smoking chicken, rather than baking or roasting it, adds an additional layer of flavor that turns any weeknight meal up a notch. We’ve got traditional low and slow BBQ chicken as well as a whole chicken recipe perfect for meal prepping. A Smoked Whole Chicken is one of the most common things we cook on our smokers. We typically smoke one or two on any given Sunday, then use the meat throughout the week for our meals, like buffalo chicken dip or smoked chicken tortilla soup. Read on for more recipes!
Modify any of our whole chicken recipes with the spatchcock, or butterflying technique. This technique speeds up the cooking process and is one of our favorite ways to roast whole chickens.
While the USDA recommends cooking all chicken to 165 the real answer is a little more nuanced if you want perfectly cooked chicken.
