My son and I did our first cook tonight'
Chicken breasts... Only took 1 hour..
Only question is, shouldn't it have taken longer? Or is this correct?
I put some rub (see pics) on the chicken 2 hours before the cook, Jack Daniels wood chips soaked for 2 hours.
Hit the breasts with a meat tenderizer but not real hard, just enough to flatten down a little and make
more uniform thickness. Put them in the smoker and chips in the center tray with water in outside ring.
Didn't watch it as close as I should but I did go out and check 3-4 times on temps. Mostly stayed around 225-250 ish.
Fourth time out and the thermometer was beeping indicating 165 degrees. I checked a few more pieces for correct temperature and all were good!
Would like some critique'
I will say that this batch tastes 100% better than all the chicken we've been doing regularly on the grill and the reason why
I purchased a smoker in the first place.. Wife loved the taste! LOL
I realize I used a store bought rub and the thermometer and the smoker isn't the top of the line but it's a start right?
I think I'm going to have fun here... LOL
