Smoked Chicken

Sunday we celebrated Andrea and my birthdays. For the celebration we had a variety of delicious foods! There was rice with cheese, a tomato onion cheese salad, boiled potatoes and a few other dishes. Another was smoked chicken which is juicy, amazing and it is VERY easy to make.

Step 1: Buy as many whole chickens as you want (including the head) we got 6.

Step 2: Create the seasoning. All that is in it is lemon juice (from VERY juicy lemons) and LOTS of salt. I believe we used about 6 lemon-oranges and we then added 1/2 kilo of salt.

Step 3: Season the chickens. Put the marinade inside the chicken as well as spreading it all of the skin of the chicken.

Step 4: Wrap a sturdy wire (fairly thick) around the legs of the chicken to hang them.

Step 5: Bring them out to the metal ¨garbage can" that has been retrofired to smoke chickens and place the chickens inside.

Step 6: Light a fire at the base and outside of the can using wood and other flammable materials that smoke.

Step 7: Let the chickens cook for about 2 hours, while keeping an eye on the fire.

Step 8: Remove the chickens from the can.

Step 9: Let them cool and then enjoy!
