Ben sometimes less is more...in this case meaning less smoke and less time in the smoke.
Try i simple rub, smoke at 325-350 as poultry doesn't need much time in smoke. Try dropping the hickory and just use a little apple... it's a mild smoke.
If it's enhanced just try smoking it and if it isn't then go ahead and brine. Hopefully the less is more approach will give you better results.
