I've been looking forward to this weekend for many reasons and the #1 primary reason was because it was a legitimate excuse to break out the smoker!! In the quest to put some new smokes under my belt, I will be completing the trifeca of new sumo-que smokes today. Here is a list of the three items that I'm smoking for the first time, one of them being an experiement .... 1. Was so bummed about the Pens losing last night I had to smoke a fattie .... it's 2lb Tennessee Pride mild sausage filled with a mexican cheese blend, green and yellow bell peppers, and scrambled eggs. 2. Zellwood, FL is harvesting it's annual crop of corn and it's always a treat! Wanted to try Jeff's smoked corn recipe so gave it a go with some white and bi-colored corn. 3. Finally, my experiment. There have been many posts about trying to smoke chicken breasts and keeping them moist. I wanted to see if I could wrap two chicken breasts around a beer can, wrap with bacon, and see if that kept them moist! I bought two decent size bone-in, unsplit, chix breasts, brined them using Travcoman45's brine recipe (I didn't inject them), and trussed them up using butcher twine, to the beer-can holder. Needed to prop up both of the breasts with some vidalia onion halves, but it still was kinda sloppy. Used toothpicks to hold some country style cut bacon in place and with that, on top of the skin, will hopefully keep that stuff moist. Lots of pics, will add them in a couple posts.
