Here are 3 secrets that will help you with this:

1. Proper positioning:

  • Don't put the chicken breast-side up! This will cause the rump to be dry and other parts of the chicken to overbake.
  • Bake the chicken with the back facing up, "hiding" the rump. This way, the rump will soak up the juices better and remain juicy.

2. Lots of spices:

  • Don't be afraid to use lots of spices! They will penetrate deep into the meat during baking and make it incredibly flavorful.
  • Don't forget the marinade. This is another way to make chicken more juicy and flavorful.

3- Exact cooking time:

  • Cooking time depends on the weight of the chicken. For example, a one-pound chicken should be cooked for about an hour.
  • The optimal temperature for baking chicken is 170-180 degrees.

Before serving on the table, let the smokers cool down a little. So it will be easier to cut and will not fall apart.
