110-Minute Smoked Whole Chicken
It only takes about 110 minutes to cook a whole, pasture-raised chicken smoked with mind-blowing juicy flavor on the grill! This is one of our family's favorites. And one of the easiest methods for cooking a whole chicken.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Thaw the chicken overnight in the refrigerator.
  2. Remove from refrigerator.
  3. Oil and season with the rub of your choice. We use olive oil, salt and garlic.
  4. Light a large charcoal chimney filled with lump charcoal.
  5. When fully lit and top pieces are partially covered in ash (about 15 - 20 minutes):
  6. Place a small pan (approx 9 x 13) in the bottom of the grill.
  7. Pour a bottle or can of beer into the pan to steam during the cook. We use a dark beer.
  8. Pour the lit charcoal evenly on both sides of the pan. The pan not only holds the beer, but it also keeps the coals from being directly under the bird.
  9. Throw a couple pieces of your favorite smoking wood on top of the coals. We like to use mesquite.
  10. Place your cleaned and oiled cooking grate on top and place the chicken in the middle of the grill above the pan.
  11. Cover and leave the vents halfway open to keep the temp of the grill between 350 - 375° F.
  12. Remove the chicken when it reaches an internal temperature of 150° F (about an hour).
  13. Cover with foil so the chicken finishes cooking, and let it rest for 30 minutes.
  14. Carve and enjoy!
