About once a month, I crave smoked chicken. I don’t put a lot of wood in the smoker when I smoke a chicken. I like just a hint of smoke and my favorite woods for chicken are apple or cherry. Most of the day, it had soaked in a honey rosemary brine and it was delicious!
We had it with smothered okra, and borracho beans.
The leftover chicken was picked off the bones and frozen, to be used in a few weeks in gumbo. I only like gumbo during cooler weather and can hardly wait to have smoked chicken gumbo with home grown okra! Yum!
