Let me get this right you only had the breast in the smoker for 2 hour???? Or smokefor only 2 hours???? Now I see your thermo probe so did you have it into the breast and take them to atleast 165° IT.???? I'm asking cause the chicken looks alittle short of done to me.

Cherry is a very mild smoke. you might try mixing it with hickory, for a slightly stronger smoke flavor.

@bngood - I'm in Louisville, CO and I thought I smelled some chicken smokeN coming from the south the other day!

Well they looked good for sure. Cherry and Apple are on the bottom end of the flavor scale. Hickory and Mesquite being on the top as far as intensity

From the outside i have to agree they dont look like they've been in a smoker for long enough to be done, but great job if they are, they look pretty good!
