Set the temperature at 220°F and let the charcoal smoker do its job. It will take about 4 to 5 hours for your chicken to cook properly.

How do you keep chicken moist when smoking?
Use a meat thermometer and cook the bird low and slow, then when it is done, let it rest for 15 minutes or so before slicing it. Steam pans do not add moisture to the meat in a smoker. The water pan is there to act as a heat sink to prevent the temperature from fluctuating too much.

Do I need to brine chicken before smoking?
