Second try

  1. Well, I am on my second go around with the chicken breasts.  For those who missed the first one, it was boobs wrapped in bacon.  This time, I bought smaller boobs, dammit.  Being a boob guy, that was very tough to say.  LOL.  Seasoned them up according to the rub recipe that Tropics gave me.  This time, no brining though.  Last time they had just a hint too much of salt, and being that they are smaller boobs, my cochef (wife) thought it best to not brine.  In the smoker at about 230 or so, and after about an hour we are at about 140.  Need to get to about 165, but I know we are going to get there in the next hour or so.  I will try and snap a few pics this time, but my son just got home from baseball practice and said, "Damn Dad, those smell pretty good", so I am hoping they go over as well this time as they did last time. 

    Next up, Tri tip.  I think.  LOL.

    Take care all, and happy easter to those who celebrate it.

    Red they look good I think the Bacon may be making it salty.

  5. I was thinking the same thing. That, and i put a pretty healthy coat of rub. I probably could have used less and that might have calmed it down.

    Good stuff though.
  6. Thanks Al. It was. Still have one peice for lunch if my son does not get to it first. Lol
