Kicked up smoked chicken!! That Cajun touch makes all the difference. You just gotta try it!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Sprinkle chickens with Cajun seasoning and leave at room temperature for 1 hour.
  2. Melt butter with Worcestershire, Tabasco, lemon juice and garlic salt; add 7 Up.
  3. Cook chickens on charcoal grill with mesquite charcoal.
  4. Turn often and baste with butter/7-Up mixture several times.
  5. When chicken is done (about 60 minutes), baste one more time - it keeps the chicken moist.

Interesting, I posted a photo and then forgot to review the recipe. This is fantastic chicken! I used 2 roasting chickens and cooked these on a propane smoker at 225 degrees. The meat was well flavored and moist. Definitely something I would do again.

Wow, this is the best smoked chicken I've ever had! I did have to substitute a can of Fresca for the 7-up, but otherwise I followed the recipe exactly. It reminds me of the traditional Texas BBQ process - first a dry rub, than a mop sauce. This recipe must be tried - it's wonderful! It's going right into my Perfection cookbook.
