Since my other try was half and half, success/failure, I decide to go for a whole one.

This one turned out pretty good. I wish I would have cooked it a little faster as my skin got tough. I may try spatchcock style. What are the benefits?

The advantage is even and faster cooking because the bird is flat and about the same size across the chicken....and you don't have a large air cavity to heat up and cook from the inside. It is multitudes better....I won't smoke another chicken unless I do it this way. I noticed that the legs and breasts get done about the same time too....I run my dark meat to 180 and my breasts to 168.
