Salsa Filled Bacon Wrapped Chicken Breasts

  1. Trying to keep it simple this weekend with my first chicken breast smoke...

    Stuffed them with some salsa to keep some moisture inside (it's a citrusy mild salsa that does have a little kick to it) and wrapped them with bacon... we'll see how it goes

    Trying to keep the temp right at 255 so they're done by dinner time (5 hours)


    Wish me luck!

    Five hours is a long time for breasts even at 255. I'd say tops about 2 hours. I'd be checking them at a 1 1/2 hours to see where the IT is. When I used to do low and slow whole birds They's be done after 2 1/2 hours at 250.
     
  3. Thanks Dirtsailor... Having trouble maintaining 240... more like 235, but still... thanks for the feedback on how short a time it might take!

    I may crank it down even a little more.
     
  4. And here is the finished product.. Dried out a tad bit, but very tasty. If anyone has any thoughts on how to maintain moisture in chicken, that would be appreciated.
