What You'll Need

A BBQ Smoker

1 Whole Chicken

Loubier Gourmet Italian Topper

Loubier Gourmet BBQ Sauce

Unsalted Butter

Salt & Pepper

Sugar & Water (Optional)


1. You can start by brining or dry brining your chicken, or you can go straight into seasoning it. If you are interested in brining them, submerge your chicken in water with salt and sugar, and let it rest for 1 hour to 24 hours. If you are interested in dry brining them, cover your chicken in salt and leave it uncovered in a fridge for 1 hour to 24 hours. Once you have finished this, pat it dry if they have been brined, and season them with salt, pepper, and Loubier Gourmet Chipotle Seasoning.

2. Warm up your smoker to 225 degrees F. We recommend using pecan, hickory, or apple, or oak wood. Make sure to let your smoker run for 30 minutes to and hour before placing your chicken on the grill grates and letting them cook in the smoke for 3 - 3 1/2 hours. You want to cook it until the chicken's internal temp reaches 165 degrees F. Remember to keep your chicken moist by spraying an apple cider and water mix onto your chicken every 30 minutes to and hour after the first hour.

3. Pull it out once it has finished cooking and let it rest.

4. Enjoy :)
