I think I'm going to try roughly 4 hrs without foiling and no wood chips! :)
Yeah.......last time. They turned out very "ashy" and the hickory taste was overwhelming. Should I try a different kind of wood chips?
Yes, but don't give up on the smoke. It could be the amount of wood used, not so much the wood itself, but I prefer an apple, a cherry...something like that. What smoker do you have? We're here to help...but you need to give us specifics and ask anything you want.
I have a Lowes Master Forge charcoal smoker. I have smoked some very good chicken so far. Only attempted BBR once and they didn't turn out too well. I did the 2-2-1 and like I said above ashy, overwhelming hickory taste, and overcooked. I figured I'd try 4 hrs vice 5 and see what happens. My temps were 225-240 the entire smoke. Thanks
Your choice. Either way works. Just remember, keep the smoke light though. Don't over do it, you want thin and blue.
