    Let me get this right you only had the breast in the smoker for 2 hour???? Or smokefor only 2 hours???? Now I see your thermo probe so did you have it into the breast and take them to atleast 165° IT.???? I'm asking cause the chicken looks alittle short of done to me.
  3. in for 3 hrs smoke for 2 hrs temp on chic was 170 chic was done clear though tasted great .just not much smoke flavor

    Cherry is a very mild smoke. you might try mixing it with hickory, for a slightly stronger smoke flavor.
  11. That's some good lookin chicken...love the color. I use a bit of mesquite with my cherry or apple. Happy Smoking [​IMG]

    Well they looked good for sure. Cherry and Apple are on the bottom end of the flavor scale. Hickory and Mesquite being on the top as far as intensity

    From the outside i have to agree they dont look like they've been in a smoker for long enough to be done, but great job if they are, they look pretty good!
