How long should you smoke chicken?

However, you should always check the internal temperature of the chicken to make sure that it is cooked through.
What is the best way to smoke chicken?
There are a few different ways that you can smoke chicken. One popular method is to use a smoker grill. This allows you to cook the chicken slowly and evenly, resulting in moist and tender meat. Another option is to use an oven smoker, which can be cooked in your home oven. Whichever method you choose, make sure that the chicken is properly coated with seasoning and sauce to give it a delicious smoky flavor.
How do you keep chicken moist when smoking?
One of the challenges of smoking chicken is keeping it moist and juicy. One way to do this is to use a marinade or brine. This will help to keep the meat hydrated and ensure that it doesn’t dry out while it’s cooking. You can also baste the chicken with sauce or melted butter during the smoking process, which will help to keep it moist.
