  • 1 Whole 3.5 - 5 lb Chicken
  • 6 Tbsp Gochujang I did not really measure
  • 2 Inches Ginger grated
  • 5 Cloves Garlic
  • 1/4 Cup Olive oil
  • 2 Tsp Salt
  • 2 Tsp Pepper


  1. Begin by combining the marinade ingredients and stirring well. Next, salt and pepper the chicken. Now, liberally apply the marinade all over the chicken. I added small round potatoes to my dish as Molly did. So the remaining marinade was used on the potatoes.

    Heat your smoker to 300 degrees. So I first placed the whole chicken in a cast iron skillet (I have a couple and this was the really big one). I then nestled the potatoes around the chicken so they were not smothered by the chicken. I made sure to wipe out the marinade bowl and put it all on top of the chicken and potatoes.

    This cooked for about 90 minutes. I used a thermometer to make sure the chicken was done. I cooked it to 165 degrees and then let it rest to at least 170 degrees. I also checked the potatoes for fork tenderness.

    Serve and enjoy!
