Are you using whole chickens, or legs and/or thighs?

As with any chicken cook where the pieces are cut up, I add the breasts about 10-15 mins into the cook so everything is done at the same time. However, with the Santa Maria pit, you could just put the breasts onto the cooler side.

I'd budget about an hour and a half, just depends how close to the coals you are cooking. With roadside, you're better off keeping the grate higher. MY BIL does whole legs and they're usually done in about two hours.

BTW, hope you'll join us at the SoCal bash on Sept 21! Link is in my signature...
