So I am smoking and then frying a 8.25# bone in breast.
I smoked with a mix of apple and hickory until IT of 140*F on the MES30
I just put it in the fryer at375*F
How many minutes per pound in the fryer?... I think I read 2.5 min per pound. Sound right?

Do you have a therm in it?

I think it will be way too done in 2.5 minutes per pound.

Your just trying to crisp up the skin & finish cooking it.

I would think just 5 or 6 minutes would get you there.

I've never done one like that, so this is just a guess.

I went 18min and it was a bit over. Still tasty with good texture. Just could have been more moist and that was due to the over temp as I injected it. Sadly, the fryer caused the skin to pull off of one side. That didn't help.
Next breast will smoke to 165*F and skip the fryer or fry the whole way.
No pics because the poor thing wasn't photo ready.
