Ingredients

  • A 5 gallon metal bucket (paint burned off)
  • 3 wooden stakes
  • 3 whole chickens
  • Butter (spray butter)
  • Hickory chips (2 cups/2 handfuls)
  • Seasoning of choice; we use garlic and seasoned pepper (season to liking)
  • Tin foil (15x15)
  • 8 lb. Bag of matchlight charcoal
  • Cotton string (about 3-4 ft.)

Directions

Make 3 stakes and drive them into ground after laying foil down [stakes placed close enough together that you can fit the three chickens on and still fit bucket over them]
Place seasoned chickens breast out on stakes and tie string around them tightly so when cooked, nothing falls off
Once chickens are placed, spray a lot of butter all around the chickens and season more
Your almost done!
Place hickory chips around and underneath the chickens
Put bucket over chickens and pour all the charcoal around the bucket
Light it up!
The chickens should cook for at least 3-3 1/2 hours

Note: This chicken will be the best dang bird you'll ever taste in your life, that is unless you have Ralph S. cook it for you. I suggest you fry up some cubed seasoned potatoes and serve the chicks with those on the side. DANG IS THAT CHICKEN GOOD!
