What to serve with a smoked chicken?

We went traveling down South to Tennessee for my favorite cousin's funeral. It was very sad. She was only 44 but we ran into some fun on the way back. At an Amish store in Berea, Kentucky they were selling HUGE smoked chickens for only a $1 more than a Walmart roast chicken with more meat. So we bought one because it's not smoking weather yet in North West Ohio. It's awaiting the weekend hanging out in the freezer. My question is, does anyone have any suggestions of what to serve with this beautiful chicken?

I'm sorry about your cousin, but the chicken sounds wonderful. I'd make homemade baked beans with bacon and brown sugar and a crisp cole slaw with mayo, celery salt and vinegar. Yum.

Sorry about your cousin. I would add potato salad to GG's list! Don't pitch the carcass, simmer it with some carrots, onion, and celery, along with whatever herbs you might have, then strain and either use or freeze. Or you can freeze the carcass and use it later.

Mmmm! I bet that smoky broth would pair well with green beans!

Well, it's true it is too early for all the good things we want to make in summer, and we want to taste all these bounties right now. I too live in the northland, and I am sure we will get a come-uppance again soon, so to speak. So enjoy your smoked chicken Today.

I will suggest a nice 3 bean salad

and if not this, precisely, choose to eat in a nice sunny location and again remember all the good things about you and your cousin. My condolences and best wishes.

I don't know about salads, but mashed potato with some of the juices that will run of the chicken sounds heavenly just about now. Love smoked chicken.

We've decided on crockpot rootbeer baked beans with cocktail weenies and the Neely's recipe for coleslaw. I'll show pics of the food before we eat.
