A co-worker asked me if I would smoke some chikens for everyone in the shop if he brought them in. I told him no problem, just leave them whole and I will do the rest. Tonight I went to prepare them for tomorrows smoke and Shocked

The chickens are whole alright, all except for most of the skin. I washed them up good and have them marinating in zesty italian dressing, but I Am wondering if they will dry out during the smoke.

Could I get away with just removing all the skin and wrapping them in bacon to keep them moist? Maybe add a water pan in the smoker to help? Kinda need some bg help quick.

I have never done a whole skinless chicken before. But my guess would be, to baste it often with butter or something to keep it moist.

You should have brined them instead of marinating them IMO.
