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?
