Roast in the preheated oven until chicken is golden brown and juices run clear, about 50 minutes. Transfer chicken and vegetables to a large platter and let rest, uncovered. Bring remaining stock and juices in the pan to the boil and cook until sauce is thickened, about 10 minutes. Season sauce with salt. Slice chicken and serve with sauce.
Set up your grill for indirect cooking (or use your smoker). Place your bird away from the heat, and throw a bunch of wood on your coals. Stick with fruit wood – apple is a good pairing with chicken. Assuming your grill holds its temp around 250, and depending on the weight, your chicken will cook for 3 – 5 hours.
Buy the Turkey. Around Thanksgiving, some stores price turkey below their cost to get people into their stores. You can smoke an excellent turkey from Butterball or Honeysuckle, but there's also a lot of value in going with a heritage breed or minimally-processed turkey.
