I buy them at Walmart, Perdue Oven Stuffer. Before Walmart came to town, I bought them at Farm Fresh. Sometimes at Farm Fresh it was the ‘store brand’ of whole chicken. They don’t always come that big but I’ll buy the biggest one they have. I can still do all the stuff I mentioned with an 8lb bird and sometimes that’s all I have to work with. Capons usually are about 8-10lbs. Large, whole chickens are getting harder to find because most people want skinless breasts or ready to reheat chicken pieces.

My 21 year old son laughed when I told him about this thread and he said “You do amazing things with one chicken. I’ve seen you do it all my life.” I even buy a whole chicken cut up if that’s all I can get (and that’s usually only about $3 or $4) and stew that. Then I’ll get a couple meals out of just that. It’s that Yankee ingenuity and thriftiness I suppose.

I'm going to look for a Perdue Oven Stuffer. That would be great! I wonder if our WalMart has them? Have you ever smoked one in a smoker? My husband has this Traeger Smoker Grill that he is crazy over. I'm here to tell you that pizza is not good in a smoker. I don't know whatever possessed him.......LOL! He has even smoked Grilled Cheese--that weren't grilled....of course, he thought they were great!

What area of the country do you live in? I'm wondering about that big chicken and where I can find it....
