Default Chicken cooking methods

In KCBS sanctioned contest, we all know that cooking chicken on grills has become acceptable. It is chicken cooked over coals and perhaps chunks or chips but often no smoking occurs.
Are dutch ovens allowed to be used to cook chicken? Not fry or boil, but to simply cook in. I have never done chicken in a dutch oven, but I can see where a crispy skin can be achieved. I can even see where chips can be used in the dutch oven to achieve smoke.
Don't want to stir the pot on the grilled chicken at comps, just wanting to know why one method would be legal and the other not. Has this ever been done or even discussed with KCBS? Would be interested to know.
