Directions

  1. Place the whole chicken into a large resealable plastic bag. Sprinkle in garlic powder, then pour in enough lemon-lime soda to cover the bird. Seal the bag, and place in the refrigerator overnight to marinate.
  2. Light charcoal in an outdoor smoker, and wait until the temperature is at 225 degrees F (110 degrees C).
  3. Remove chicken from the bag, and place on the grill grate. Discard marinade. Cover, and cook for 10 hours. Occasionally toss a handful of soaked wood chips on the coals.

Not what my wife and I expected, way to much citrus flavor!!

Hmmmm, this is different. I ended up adding more spices. I think that this one might have to grow on us.

I tried this one last week, not on a smoker but a Traeger wood pellet grill. I used some cheap Safeway brand lemon-lime pop. I could've smoked it on the grill, but chose to cook it like I always do whole chickens on the Traeger....45 minutes on High, 45 minutes on Smoke, but added 10 more minutes or so on the Smoke setting. One of the best chickens I've ever cooked, but you gotta like the citrus flavor. I imagine the flavor on mine was more subtle than if I'd smoked it for 10 hours like the author did. Very fine recipe, and very easy.

I do have a smoker so this worked out extremely well. This isn't for grilling but for slow smoking as was stated and was great. No citrus flavor problem for us when smoking.

This worked well for us. Didn't have any problems with too much of a citrus flavor. Hubby used this recipe for both salmon and chicken. YUM and thanks "What's his Face"!
