Hanging chickens

I want to show off another feature of the cypress smoker.Put a couple of swivels in the top, fashioned two wire hooks to hang chickens from. picked up a couple of four pounders from sam's,seasoned then up good stuffed with onion,and hung them in the smoker. I removed the grill and the water pan and cooked them over direct heat to get a golden brown and crispy skin. I cooked them about 3 1/2 hrs at about 260 spraying about every 30 min. with a mixture of apple juice and olive oil.They turned out great. Some of the best chicken i ever had. enjoy the pics.

Re: Hanging chickens

Hanging chickens looks like the way to go. I am going to have to mod my drum.

Outstanding.

Re: Hanging chickens

Mighty fine birds. Heard of choking chickens before but neva thought about hanging em. Smart thinning.

Re: Hanging chickens

Do they jump in the snow at the end? Nice sauna.
