“This is a great recipe for smoked chicken. I use chunks of hickory in my grill to impart a smoky flavor to the meat.”

Very easy and delicious recipe. I smoked a large roaster for about 4.5 to 5 hours and the chicken was very juicy. I could not taste the herbs throughout the chicken, though; only on the breast area where the herbs were stuffed under the skin. Next time I will try inserting the butter and herbs throughout the entire bird so there will be more of those yummy, herbal bites. Thanks!

Excellent! We actually used our charcoal smoker and smoked with mesquite wood instead of cooking this on the grill. The herbs really gave the whole chicken a nice flavor. I added bay leaves in the cavity and rubbed the skin down with garlic powder before cooking. Thanks!

This is very good! I didn't have fresh oregano or basil so I used fresh rosemary sprigs. I put butter under the skin with two fresh rosemary sprigs and fresh parsley. I also put it inside the cavity with chopped onion. The fresh rosemary flavor was delish! We smoked our 5 lb. chicken for 5 hours at 225. Great recipe!
