Apple Wood Smoked Sittin Chicken Recipe


  • 1 whole 3-4 lb chicken
  • 1 whole orange, quartered
  • olive oil
  • vegetables

Clean chicken.

Using our new Sittin Chicken/Beer Can Roaster, we stuffed the cavity with orange quarters. We didn’t use beer this time.
Rubbed the skin with olive oil and filled the base with vegetables which added another flavor layer.
Because our smoker is well seasoned we used only about 1/4 cup of apple wood chips. This gave the chicken a slightly sweet smoked flavor. Again, start with a little wood until you find your own smoke flavor level. Smokin is all about what YOU like.
We smoked at 225°F to an internal temp of around 170°F in the breast -about 4 hours. Use a thermometer to get an accurate smoke/cook. Thread probes through the smoke hole.
Let stand for 10 minutes then slice and enjoy a whole meal smoked in one pan.

Easter Menu Inspiration-Pecan Praline Honey Ham by Cajun Boy

Praline ham Cajun Boy

1     Smithfield Fully Cooked Whole or Half Ham

This has become a favorite at our house. You will need a SmokinTex 1500 Series Smoker  for a 18 to 20 lb. Whole Ham, or you can do a 10 or 11 lb. Half Ham in the 1400. Just cut the Recipe in half for the Half Ham. A heavy duty Injection Needle would also be beneficial. Use your Drip Pan as a Roasting Pan, and place Ham inside. Let any liquid packed with the Ham go in the Pan. For the Half Ham, place cut side down.

2    Cups Dark Corn Syrup (Karo)
1/2 Cup Water
2   Tbs. Light Brown Sugar
2   Tbs. Molasses
1/2 Tsp.;Ground Cinnamon
1/2 Tsp. Ground Cloves
4    Tbs. Honey
1    Cup Pecan Halfs
2    Cups Light Brown Sugar
      Whole Cloves (optional)

Chop half of the Pecans and mix with the 2 Cups Light Brown Sugar. Score Ham and rub this mixture all over. In a small bowl, mix the Water, 2 Tbs. Light Brown Sugar, Molasses, Ground Cinnamon, Ground Cloves, and Honey until well blended. Add Corn Syrup and stir well. Slowly inject Ham all over, reserving a small amount of the Marinade. Decorate with Pecan Halfs and Whole Cloves, if you like, and drizzle with reserved Marinade. Smoke at 200 degrees for five hours over 3 ozs. Apple Chunks. Tent with Foil and let rest for 30 minutes. Spoon Pan Sauce over Slices when serving.

Thanks Cajun Boy!
