PP and tumbled chicken breasts

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Dad isn't moving like he used to so he can't cook like he wants. So the bride and I made some ready to heat and eat stuff for the parentals.

I put 10 boneless skinless chicken breasts into the tumbler with a brine and let them tumble for 30 minutes twice. While those were tumbling, I prepped 2 butts.




After tumbling, I left the breasts in the vacuum tub and put it in the frig.

I rubbed the butts at 4:30 or so and put them into my homemade electric vertical at 5:45.



After I put the butts on, the bride and I had some snacks.



Chicken boobs went on at 7:00 PM. I seasone 3 with Mrs Dash chipotle, 2 with Mrs Dash garden mix, and the rest with citrus fajita.



At around 10 the breasts hit 155 so I pulled them and tented with foil for around 1/2 hour. Then, packaged up.





And now, ladies and gentlemen, this is why I built my electric smoker. I went to bed.

When I got up this morning (vacation day) I noticed that my cook alarm hadn't gone off all night and I was still 20 or so degrees away from done.

I had to peek though, and all looked well... probe 4 was used for the breasts last night and was sitting on the top of the smoker all night. Oops.


At almost noon, I hit 205 in the large one and 201 in the smaller, so I pulled them. Bark for miles!







All shredded up and vac packed now.

The smoker ran at 230 from start to finish and I used pecan pellets in my AMAZEN tube.

I'll see about getting a shot or 2 of my folks enjoying some of this tomorrow when I go to the farm to deliver.

Thanks folks!

I'm thinking that I'll soon lose the father Ive known for 50 years... Alzheimer's is a BITCH! But, he and I shall have a good time in the interim!

However, in the mean time, the bride and I will do what we can. Dad and stepmom will get PP, chicken breasts, loin ham, and some chopped chuck. My bride made them a couple of casseroles and put them into one serving containers. All will be easy for them to nuke or reheat easily.

I can't be out there regularly, but I can try and make sure they are fed well.

Not sure how I missed this post, but it's a good one! Awesome cook, and good looking out for the folks, and the use of the word "parentals"! Love the Qview and write up. I used to have a food saver with a vac canister but the pump went out on it. When I had mine, I never thought about using it for marinading, now I'm thinking I might need to get a new one.

Man that is some good lookin' food.

Nice work on the cooking.

Even nicer work helping out your parents.

You're going to have to go out and kick some puppies,

you're giving CrankyBuzzards a good name.

Points to you.

HA!  I'll never have too good of a name, I earned the nickname for sure!  

 

Sorry for not replying to a few here, and also thanks for the points.  Somehow I got unsubscribed to this one.
