hey guys im going to attempt one of these this weekend and i am going to try the "chicken cordon bleu' one and i was wondering if anybody out there can help me out with what the internal temperature should be thanks and maybe what flavour of wood to use
165˚ at a minimum. That's not my opinion, it's a hard and fast safety rule. As for wood, a mixture of hickory and cherry works well. Since a fatty only smokes for a couple hours, the stronger flavor of hickory will stand out more, and the sweetness of the cherry is a nice complement to it. It'll also help with the smoke ring. is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
