  • 1 tbsp oil

Seasoning

  • 1 1/2 tbsp paprika
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp garlic powder

  • 1 tsp fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp oregano

Instructions

  • Combine seasoning in a small bowl.
  • Rub chicken with oil to help seasoning stick.
  • Rotating the bird as needed, sprinkle the seasoning evenly on all sides in a generous layer.
  • Place chicken, breast side up, in smoker and maintain a temperature of 250 degrees for 3-4 hours. A digital thermometer should read 165 degrees when the chicken is done.

Notes

I used cherry wood for this recipe, however most woods designed for smoking work well with chicken.
