Got some big breasts.   1.65 a lb.


Pounded flat.


Ham and swiss added


All tooth picked together.


The mini does these high temps with ease.  I ended the cook around 350.


1 1/2 hours later.



I usually wrap in bacon but somebody left me run out.  AND I have none curing.   


Thanks for looking.

Looks great! I'm impressed with how juicy it looks for a boneless skinless chicken breast!

Yeah! I am a thrill seeker I always pull meat a few degrees lower than the recommended temp knowing that it will coast up...chicken, 162 or so...the food safety folks would kill me. That is when I am going to be only one to eat it. Don't want to take a chances with my wife and daughter. I have to say the thing that has improved my cooking more than anything is having a good internal thermometer! I have learned over and over again on SMF to throw timed cooking out the window and cook to your desired temp

What impresses me about this cook is how the cheese remained inside. I've made something similar in my Kettle, but it's always seems to melt out. Even when I have them far away from the coals.
I think the mini would be perfect for this. Great job C!

Looks great, C! I love anything filled with cheese....and something filled with cheese and then smoked? Sheer heaven.

A bacon wrap would have put this over the top, but you make do with what you've got. Still looks fantastic.

Thanks for sharing, and have a great weekend!

I did lose some cheese but not much.   I used a lot of tooth picks to try to seal it up.

C That looks fantastic. Are you cooking to an internal temp? Or by time?  Whichever way you're doing it you have nailed it!
