Default Smoked Chicken

I'm gonna try to smoke some chicken breasts tonight in my little oven smoker. Just wondering what temperature do ya'll try to keep the smoker and about how long?

I'll keep it in till internal temperature reaches 165 degrees, but for planning purposes about how long is that at your favorite temp?

Thanks,

Jim

I am actually smoking a cornish game hen as we speak. I smoke it at 225 degrees until the internal temp reaches 165. A whole hen takes about an hour and a half.

Thanks for the directions... As a gift I got a six month subscription to different BBQ sauces. The first one was this,

http://www.thekitchenstore.com/dpiorbasa.html

I also got a bottle of his "Honey BBQ"...

Both were "fine", no real difference after "finishing" with each, both, for me a little too tart initially, a little too sweet overall. (does that make sense?)

My favorite by far so far, a gift from last year...

This stuff is AWESOME as a BBQ dipping sauce.

Jim, try this some time. Take a gallon food can and use a church key to cut about 6-8 holes on the side (bottom). Bottom of can intact. Take a chicken and wrap with heavy foil. Place 11 BBQ brickets and light. When they start to burn set chicken into can neck down. When the bricks are totally burned remove and eat. Spice to taste before wrapping. Set can on something that won't burn, I use bricks or set in my grill.

It was just okay... cooked almost like it was baked... I did not get any of that pink "smoked" effect. So I'll add more chips next time. It was 225 degrees for about an hour in my convection oven till 160 degrees... I then used the broiler for about 7 minutes to get the crisp and raise the temp a bit more.

The "doneness" was perfect, flavor was just okay...

Leg quarters are the key to smoking chicken the best. That piece just seems to soak in flavor better and the fact that it's dark meat helps too. A breast is too tight a piece of meat if that makes sense.

I also like to marinate mine first...my favorite being allegra's(sp?) creole marinade...gives it a nice kick. I cook it on a weber charcoal grill, get a hot fire on one side and cook with indirect heat. The charcoal will color the meat nicely and gives it a good flavor but you can add wood chips if you prefer. Cook with natural charcoal so you can add more while you're cooking if you need to...can't do that with kingsford.

Try chunks, not chips...and soak 'em in hot water for a bit if you are not doing so.

If you want real smoked meat need to step up to a full wood smoker, cheaper than you think and as easy as breathing o use! If you like bar-b-que I have a simple sauce recipe I got from an ole GA boy that is brown sugar based, and slap good
