What, and have my welding blanket smell of onions?!

I use a plastic 55 gal drum that I have cut the bottom out of as an insulation shroud. It's got a few bullet holes in it, but you'll have that in the country

What a great idea! It would be good on windy days too.

Yep. It's great on windy days. I use it on long Q's, too. I can damper the vents more and the charcoal lasts longer.

Smoking chicken with a water pan will almost always give you rubbery skin. Try a higher temperature, 225 to 235 degrees, with no water pan. Baste once or twice with oil or butter.

Alternatively (my prefered method), smoke it for an hour with medium smoke, then transfer to a preheated oven at 350 or 375 until done.
