Easy Smoked Chicken

205 mins (prep 25, cooking 180)
8 ingredients
8-10 servings
This chicken gets its flavor from the smoke of the hickory chips, so I don't baste with a barbecue sauce while cooking this recipe....feel free to add it if you think it's necessary. I do like to offer Julie's Alabama White Sauce posted by Oolala when serving it. It's important to use skin on chicken halves because the chicken is cooked for a long period over indirect heat. I have the butcher at my grocery store cut whole chickens in half for me to make it easier on myself.
