    Would it be possible to smoke them for a couple of hours, put them in the frig and then through them in a frier the next day?

    I've not tried it, but I don't see why not.
  3. unless you smoke them to 165 to 170 first You would need to be very careful with the 4 hours between 40 - 140 because once you start smoking them they will heat up and then when you take them off and throw them in the fridge it will also take time for them to cool back off to under 40 and if you throw them straight in the freezer half cooked the outside will freeze then insulate the inside and take quite some time to get back down to safe temp. hope this helped salmonella ain't fun

    You can hot smoke them, 225+, to an IT of 150°F, killing all the nasties, then refer them in a single layer to cool quickly. The next day, fry them until they are tender and crisp, IT of 170, and sauce. You will have no issues...JJ

    Do you think they would run the risk of turning out dry?

    No, not at all. I have done it several times. Great way to get crispy skin! (smoke about 1.5 hours them drop them in a turkey frier with peanut oil for about a minute...done) It's just that I am limited in the amount I can do at one time and for the 4th I need about 200 to feed quests coming.

    I need a Lang 84 deluxe!
