    Dawg, morning.....  What was the final flavor like ??  Oriental maybe ??   Are you going to make it again....    Dave
  5. The pineapple just added a hint of sweet too me, i haven't smoked a variety of different things yet, but this one by far is my wifes favorite, so yah I will be doing this one again, gotta keep peace in the family :)...............As a newbie to smoking, I am trying to find different meals for me to make for this upcoming tailgating season, this one will definitely make the menu, pretty easy.

    Looks awesome, nice work. How long did you brine them for before rubbing them down with the honey and rub mix? Time and temp smoked/cooked?
  7. Thanks.........Actually the honey was in the brine, thats a good idea though to put a little honey on to hold the rub..........I brined for about 1 3/4 hrs, then put rub on, smoked for about 3 hrs at 225 till breast reached 165, let sit about 15 minutes covered loosely with foil..........Very tender and tasty..............used apple wood........I have a Smoke Vault 24, still learning the ropes.
  8. Hi, I am a new to smoking and new to this site.  When you smoke bacon wrapped around chicken, does the bacon get crisp?

    yes the bacon gets crispy to a point. It will not break apart one you but has a very nice BITE THRU quality.
