Smoked some chicken breasts for New Years

They took longer than I expected, maybe I should have used 250 instead of 220?

They were good, I brined them for a few hours and they were nice & moist. What kind of sauce would you recommend? I'm still very new at this.

How about some details on what you used for seasoning, time and temp. Looks really tasty and i would love to give it a try. Thanks

Sweet Baby Rays is a great sauce if you can find it where you live. I usually smoke my chicken at a higher temp than I do my pork and beef.  I like 300* for chicken.

I brined them for about 3hrs in a solution of 1/2 cup Kosher salt & 1/2 cup brown sugar.  Next time I think I'll cut the salt by 1/2.  I just used an off-the-shelf poultry seasoning from Lowe's http://www.lowes.com/pd_608910-49368-OW85185_0__?productId=50330209

 

Then placed the bacon over the chicken.  Smoked at around 220 (in hindsight, it should have been hotter).  Took about 4 hours to get to 165 degrees.

 

I'm still very much a noobie, so take that into consideration. :biggrin:

I think it was some hickory that I bought at Lowes.  I just trimmed up an apple tree on my property and saved a bunch for smoking.  Looking forward to trying that.

Looks delicious! I guess it's true. Everything IS better with bacon.
