Personally, I'd use lump charcoal, boiled chicken is pretty bland. :lmao: :lmao: :lmao: :lmao: :lmao:

I would just leave it out, but a foiled (empty) pan can act as a heat deflector but still let the WSM temps get up to where you want them.

What Jeff said ~ I think you're better off cooking chicken at between 325 and 350¬į..Water in the pan will try to hold the pit temp down in the low to mid 200's.

Yep, I don't do that much chicken in the WSM, but the stuff I've done I have always used an empty foiled pan and cooked at higher temps. I've never done a chicken cook in the WSM without the pan, that's coming though, just to see if I can get the sking to where I like it.

I much prefer chicken done in the kettle, indirect, wood added and then crisp up the skin when it's done. If I do a whole chicken it always gets done on the rotiss.

I would guess about an 1 1/2 hours, but don't quote me on that, maybe someone else who has more experience can chime in on the time.

Let me check something and I'll get right back to you.

I checked over on TVWB and Keri C had done some half chickens once at higher temps, but she wascloser to 375 and they took her 45 minutes to get to 170 degrees.

So 325-350, that timing should be pretty close, I would check temps at the one hour mark and go from there.
