Default Smoked chicken instead of smoked turkey?

Has anyone done a smoked chicken similar to a smoked turkey, or does everyone stick with the beer can method?

Whaddya mean similar to a turkey? Many ways to do both chicken and turkeys. And if you've only done beer can chicken you haven't lived my brother! Not saying BC chicken isn't good... I don't think I've ever done a beer can chicken & honestly I really don't feel the need to. There are so MANY ways to smoke a chicken. Look around the site. The main thing to remember is "hot smoke"

Cheers

I do my chicken just like a turkey except no injection. Usually use the mini now as it does such a good job.

Try either on a Rotisserie. Smoking Poultry is very easy, it takes on smoke very fast so go lite on the wood. I prefer to cook poultry at 325º-350º.

Rotisserie for me it's the "standard" way to cook chicken in my neck of the woods (works great for Turkeys too).

I've done smoked chicken "just like" my turkey. I also beer can it, spatchcock it, and do it any number of other ways.

I'm one of those who doesn't like smoke on my chicken but I cook spatchcock or chicken halves indirect with lump I find it smokey enough with the charcoal. Mild woods would work I'm sure

I smoked a whole chicken Beer can style low and slow @ 225 once, and only once. It tasted like a wet cigarette. So don't make that mistake, or make the mistake, and you'll never do it again. Stay higher around 350, and you'll be just fine. I'm a beer can chicken kinda guy, but I've never spatchcocked a chicken, so I can't comment.

Maybe you accidentally used a spit can I have injected chickens with peach nectar, butter, and rub and then used the peach nectar can instead of beer (however I did drink beer while smoking the chickens - don't know if that counts). Turned out very tasty.
