Quick help with some chicken breasts

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hey everyone,

 

Having an odd problem with my chicken breasts (bone in)....currently smoking two in a Chargriller Akorn.

 

I usually smoke a whole chicken cut in half and it takes 2.5 to 3 hours to get two of them to the magic 169 degrees at 230 degrees on the smoker.

 

This time I am only smoking two chicken breasts (bone in/skin on).  I put them on at about 3:20 PM and they are already showing 171.  It's only been an hour and a half, roughly.

 

Could they really be done?  Is there that big of a difference between cooking just chicken breasts and a whole chicken cut in half?

 

Thx

It is a redi check with dual probes, one for the bbq and one for the meat.  It's never failed me.

 

The temp did spike up to about 250 for a few minutes, I guess the bones in a whole chicken cause it to take more time.

 

Thanks, I will yank them off the grill.
