  • Smoker


  • 1 3-4lb whole, chicken
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • Traeger Chicken Rub or Traeger Fin and Feather Spice Rub (or can use seasonings of your choice)


  • Turn smoker on and set to 300 degrees and let it preheat about 10-15 minutes.
  • Cut the back bone out of the chicken and flatten out.
  • Liberally sprinkle the chicken seasoning all over the bird, front and back.
  • Place the chickens on the hot grill. Lay it splayed out on its back with breasts up. Place the meat thermometer into the thickest part of the chicken thigh. Close the smoker lid.
  • Let the bird smoke until the internal temperature gets to 165 degrees and then remove the bird from the smoker. Cover the chicken with foil and let it rest for about 10 minutes, which allows the juices to redistribute.
  • After letting the chicken rest, cut into portions and eat! Enjoy friends!
