How To Smoke The Best Whole Chicken In A Barrel And Or Drum Smoker


How To Smoke The Best Whole Chicken In A Barrel And Or Drum Smoker! I haven’t really figured out what to call it? A drum smoker or a pit barrel smoker or a barrel smoker? But since my brother-in-law Jim made this for me we named it a “Slim Barrel Smoker” SBS because his nickname is “Slim”. And OMG this chicken was absolutely amazing! Dripping with juices and so tender! And I couldn’t mess it up because I used my MeatStickX by @The MeatStick so that it smoked to perfection! It’s so satisfying to just let it roll and keep an eye on your temps with a MeatStick! And the only thing I put on this chicken is Uncle Steve’s Sweet & SpicyR from @Uncle Steve’s Shake and it amazing! I am absolutely loving my pit barrel smoker that my brother-in-law Jim made for me!

    Holy Juiciness!! I never knew a chicken could be that juicy!! That barrel smoker did a super job of smoking the chicken Kevin! And you can never go wrong with one of Uncle Steve's Shakes! I have that Flavor too that I use on Chris's Steaks and Ribs. Hope you are having a great week!

    Hey Kevin. My son had been bugging me to do a whole chicken. Might give it a try on the Akorn Jr. Man, all the cool kids have the MeatStick X. Probably why I don't have one. Lol. Just super. Love it brother. ✌️
