i'll be smoking a whole chicken for the first time this weekend.
which brings me to the question--approximatly how long would it take to smoke a 6 1/2 lb. whole chicken?

depends on what temp you're cooking it at. More importantly, you cook to a temperature, not to a time.

Probably between 2-4 hours though, depending on temperature. A meat thermometer costs much less than salmonella poisoning.

Sounds like a good time.

I'm doing a tri-tip for the first time on Sunday that a friend gave me today.

It's only 3-4lbs, so not a ton of meat. Based on the sample I tried that he did, it's good stuff slow cooked and heated up at the end.

I usually do them at 250 and at 3-3.5 hours they are fall apart tender, come clean off the bone, and juicy as can be.

I have 2 pork butts on the UDS now. Put 'em on at about 9 last night, probably pull them in a couple of hours and rest for a couple. YUM.
