I'd defer to my mini for chicken...turns out the best chicken on the PLANET. If i couldn't do it on the mini then i'd go to the Jimmy or UDS. It's almost over kill firing up the UDS for only a chicken but for even cooking and temp control it's higher quality Q than on the kettle.
Don't get me wrong...the kettle is a trooper and a versatile cooker but the cover has been on it for a long time since the mini's came into the picture.
