First thing I did was make a homemade Italian Parmesan bread to put the sliced chicken on after getting buttered up. Something about fresh chicken on fresh buttered bread tastes so good.

I have figured out that if you do skinless on the pellet smoker you end up with a tough outside skin, so I pick up bone in, skin on, chicken and turkey breasts when I want to do them in the smoker.

So I seasoned them up with Jeff's Rub and rosemary under the skin, and dry marinaded them in the vac seal marinader for a couple of hours. The top one had it under the skin but caught some of the rub when I did the lower one.

Then onto the smoker @225 with Lumberjack competition pellets. Some Nice TBS!

Just over an hour into the cook.

Out of the smoker and into the house.

And the infamous money shot! Leftover beans and smoked sausage with cut green beans.

What a beautiful piece of work John, I'd be thrilled to be sitting down to that meal, big Like! Seems like the RecTec is working quite well enough to pull that great meal off. RAY

That chicken looks great. I bought my first breadmaker in 1989, the old mini R2D2 look a like from DAK and have been baking bread with various machines since then. Gotta love the smell of fresh bread in the house.

Fantastic looking plate. Skin on is the only way for me anymore on the pellet. Can crank high heat towards the end or just peel skin off if desired.

Nice plate lunch
Love bone and skin in chicken. Wife gets it for thighs, but likes the breasts ... less.
You nailed it with the bread. Most of us idiots can cook a chicken?

Thanks for the like Robert, kind words. Yes we made a full meal out of the beans the night before, this was the leftover.

Nice looking meal there John!

Thanks for the like Ray, and it is working but still getting temp spikes and support is giving me the run around....

Thanks Bytor, I have only been at it for a couple of months, but am liking it. My wife had one when we first met and she used it but I did not.

Thank you WR for the like, and I do not eat the skin anymore due to the fat content, used to love it though.

Some good looking chicken right there! And a fine looking plate also. Nice job! Gotta find time to try that bread.
