Teriyaki Smoked Chicken - Crash and Damsel

Crash and Damsel smoked a chicken and showed us how its done! Please see below for the marinade recipe.

The Unsuspecting Chicken Chicken with Teriyaki Sauce
The chicken has been cleaned and placed into a sealable bag for marinating. Half a batch of homemade teriyaki sauce is added to the bag.
Marinating the Chicken Crash Lighting the Charcoal in the Chimney
Excess air has been removed from the bag by folding tighly, then sealing immediately. Crash checks the progress of the burning paper in the chimney.
Vertical Poultry Roaster Marinated Chicken Ready for the Roaster
Got this gadget for a song at a thrift shop (and we're terrible singers). This was the first time we used it, but definitely will not be the last. This gadget has a nifty tray at the bottom for catching drippings.
Chicken and Hot Coals in the Smoker And the Waiting Begins ...
Crash added hickory chips and chunks just after this picture was taken. Joe and Crash begin the 2-1/2 hour watch over the smoking chicken. It was smoked with hickory and charcoal at 220F.
Crash and His Beloved Smoker The Finished Masterpiece
Crash opened the cooker to turn the bird and to add hickory chunks. It's like the chicken was varnished in a mahogany glaze. Gorgeous!
The First Slice
Okay, it was upside-down. The three of us had a long discussion, and we were all wrong. LOL! I have no pictures of further portions. The chicken was scarfed down as it was sliced. We did save the drumsticks for today's leftovers.
