Whole Smoked Chicken Recipe

I like to place bird breast down as my theory is the fat juices run through the breast before exiting the bird. Also, I've increased the temp to 325°F but not until it's cooked at 320°F for at least 1hr 30 min. It'll hit 170°F fast!. It'll be black on the outside, but holy moly is it good!
