here is a look 1 1/2 hours into  cook.. mmmmmmmmmm looking good 008.JPG

ok breast hit right around 168 so time to pull them off and let rest for a few in the cooler. this will be a good time for another beer010.JPG

 

the chicken was great and the wife loved it to so that was a plus. I am such a big fan of brine and marinade its like night and day.

 

thanks for looking.

Chicken looks good...I love to smoke chicken, it's quick and simple. A little salt, pepper and smoke then you have a meal.

What was the time and temp that you cooked them? Also, how did the skin turn out?

When i do chicken i smoke a bit hotter right around 250-270 this will help to crisp the skin also. i smoked them about 3 hours i cook more to temp so don't really keep track off time i pulled these off the smoker when they hit 168 degrees.  the skin turned out great it was not as crisp like i get most the time but it was real tasty.
