Newb to smoking Thunder Chicken...

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

My mother in law gave me two 7.5lb bone on breasts to smoke for Christmas and this will be my first turkey smoke and I was looking for some tips.  

 

To brine or not to brine?

 

In a pan or no pan?

 

Rub or no rub?

 

Above or below brisket that will be on?

 

Thank you everyone and Todd I can't wait to try out the AMNPS this weekend!  Day later than I thought, but will be here in time for it's maiden voyage!

 

Thanks everyone and MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Brine

It is up to you.  If you do it in a pan consider putting it on a bed of vegetables (carrots, onion, celery)

 

Rub or no rub?

I'd at least do salt and pepper.  If you going to brine it then a rub may not be necessary. 

 

Above or below brisket that will be on?

Below unless it is in a pan.  In that case it really doesn't matter.  NEVER put poultry above other stuff unless it is in a pan.

Good advice, the only thing I would ad would be to separate the skin by sliding you hand in slowly, being careful not to tear it. Then put some of your rub & butter under the skin. For a rub we like Montreal chicken seasoning. Dust it over EVOO.
