Default Smoking Chicken on a Small BGE

After lots of cooking on Large BGE cookers, sometimes it is nice to switch it up and use the uber efficient Small BGE. A small load of lump sure lasts a long time! What is your favorite "Go To" cooker?

I have a Klose 20x42 side firebox, a weber kettle and a WSM. I have to say I use that WSM all the time

your chicken looks great!

i have the L,S & mini bge's and out of all of them, i love the large most for its versatility, but i still use my small all the time. every since i got it, my mini is the most neglected, getting used only about once a month.
Out for now.

I think I'm with you on the Small BGE Tim! It so easy to get it ready to cook and is just the right size for my smaller cook sessions. It's a great size for a whole chicken.

I have only used my BGE twice now but can unequivocally say it is my favorite cooker ever. I have never had such an easy time with temp and fire control. I’m sure there will be bumps along the way but I’m willing to experience them.

ETA: that bird looks delicious!
