Have you ever smoked a whole chicken? If no then what are you waiting for, just go for it? It is the best-smoked chicken recipe you’ll ever try. You’ll find it particularly flavorful and unique. It can be cooked so easily and quickly while the coffee grounds add something special.
Step 1: First of all, fill the smoker with wood chips.
Step 2: Leave the water pan dry (this can help you to get the chicken skin crispy). Start preheating the smoker to 300 degrees Fahrenheit.
Step 3: Take the chicken out of the packaging and remove giblets if that hasn’t been done already. Use a paper towel to pat the skin dry.
Step 4: Place uncovered in the refrigerator while the smoker heats up and you prepare the rub.
Step 5: Take all of the rub ingredients and mix them in a bowl until well combined and there are no clumps of spices.
Step 6: Coat the chicken all over with the rub.
Step 7: Now, place the chicken in the smoker and cook for at least 2 to 3 hours, until the temperature registers 165 degrees Fahrenheit at the thickest part of the chicken’s leg.
