    I decided to try smoker fried chicken.

    Got the idea from Keith.


    Chicken on sale.


    3/4 basket lump and 1/2 chimney of lit.


    While that was getting to temp I got the chicken ready.


    I sprayed oil on then put my rub on the more oil then Panko.  Use lots of oil.  I used coconut oil.   (  Healthy )


    As hot as the mini will get today.

    Nice smoke.


    45 mins and they are done.



    Nice and juicy.


    These were very good but I want the coating alittle more crisp.

    Gonna see if I can get the mini hotter next time.

    Thanks for looking.

    Thanks Bear.

    I think if I can get the mini hotter I can get a better crust.

    I would be all over that! I haven't tried doing fried chicken in a smoker but when I want a crispier coating while baking, I spray a very light layer of oil on the bread crumbs after they are applied to the chicken. The little extra oil on the surface helps the crumbs get crisp.

    I put a couple of layers of oil on.  Maybe I used too much.

    Another thing for you too try.   

    Thanks Disco
    Thanks Justin.     I will be making chicken this way more often.
     
  7. That chicken looks spot on as far as juiciness - I bet it was nice & tender  [​IMG]    If you are looking for a crispier coating you might consider giving this a try

    I've had really good luck with it & it starts out extra crispy from the get go... If you try it I bet you'll like it.

    Nice smoke man  [​IMG]

    What would corn meal be like. We use it for mushrooms and other deep fried stuff.

    I suspect it would be good but if you want major crunch without breading, try corn flake crumbs.

    Nice Adam!  Those look great to me!  As Disco suggested, corn flakes are good for making a crispier coating...I've also used crunched-up potato chips.
