    bone in chicken breast--225 for 4 hrs. Breasts were large. Anybody ever spray the chicken during the smoke process with apple juice mixture? I would like to try it.

    I'm one of the ones that doesn't look while cooking , however your Breast look lovely [​IMG]  .

    Sounds like they may have been in the heat a bit too long... were they dry [​IMG]

    Try wrapping in Bacon next time , a great way to keep them moist AND tasty...

    Have fun and . . .

    No the inside was moist. The outside a little dry. If you use bacon do you leave it on the whole time? I'm guessing you do. Thanks for any advice!
     
  4. I've sprayed with apple juice on occasion.  It comes out fine - you just lose smoke and heat every time you open the smoker.  It added a slight apple flavor - pleasant, but not strong enough to make me want to do it all the time.
