Apple Wood Smoked Chicken

  • 1 whole 3-4 lb chicken
  • 1 whole orange, quartered
  • olive oil
  • vegetables

Clean chicken.

Using our new Sittin Chicken/Beer Can Roaster, we stuffed the cavity with orange quarters. We didn't use beer this time.
Rubbed the skin with olive oil and filled the base with vegetables which added another flavor layer.
Because our smoker is well seasoned we used only about 1/4 cup of apple wood chips. This gave the chicken a slightly sweet smoked flavor. Again, start with a little wood until you find your own smoke flavor level. Smokin is all about what YOU like.
We smoked at 225F to an internal temp of around 170F in the breast -about 4 hours. Use a thermometer to get an accurate smoke/cook. Thread probes through the smoke hole.

Let stand for 10 minutes then slice and enjoy a whole meal smoked in one pan.
