  1. Fist remove the chicken's backbone with snips, then generously apply salt, pepper, onion powder, and paprika to the cavity.
  2. Flip the bird over and repeat on the other side.
  3. Turn on the smoker and wait until the fire starts. When smoke start to rise, turn up the temperature to 350 degrees.
  4. Place the spiced chicken on the grill, cavity side down and cook until the internal temperature is at least 165 degrees. All juices should run clear.
  5. Remove from the grill, then cover with foil and let it rest. About half way through the resting phase, baste the bird with juices that form at the bottom of the dish. Basting will prevent the skin form getting too dry.
