If you're smoking chickens (plural) why not try one brined and one not, just to see if you notice a difference?
Personally, I always brine my chickens. I also like to add a little of the rub that I'm using on the chickens to the brine...that way the flavor of the rub is everywhere in/on the chicken. The one thing you need to be careful of is that if you are using a salty rub, cut back a little on the salt in the brine. Don't want to end up overly salty.
