If the lid is off, you are grilling. If the lid is on, you are bbqing, or smoking.

Always on, always low.

depends on what you are going for. Chicken is good either way.

lid on means no flames to burn yr meat, just make sure your vent holes are open to keep the heat up

1.white hot coals,just when you think they are white enough let em burn for ten mins. more
2.make sure your cooking grate is not to low
3.put the bird on the grate
4. closed the lid
5.baste at the last minute
p.s. do not close the air supply hole all the shut it will smother your heat.

if you are cooking chicken with bones in, probably down for at least part of it because you are creating a broiler effect and that may be necessary to get the chicken to cook all the way through.
(and as said above make sure that there is ventilation)
if you are cooking chicken fillets with no skin and no bone, keep the top down.

You can cook it either way, bones or no bones, skin or no skin. I grill whole chickens, butterflied with the lid up the whole time. I've also smoked whole chickens for a couple of hours with the lid down.

Unless I'm smoking something for hours, I usually start the charcoal in a chimney and spread the white hot coals on one side of the grill. Then sear the meat over the coals, lid up, watching for excessive flames. Once It has a little color, I'll move it to the other side of the grill, close the lid and cook with indirect heat.

I mean cook it with the lid up, otherwise I don't make any sense
