    My husband and I just tried to smoke for the first time. I'm not sure what we did wrong. We smoked boneless, skinless, chicken breasts wrapped in bacon. It only took about 2 hours dor the internal temperature to reach 165, however, the bacon isn't fully cooked?? Any advice?

    You're smoking at a lower temp and that will not allow the bacon to crisp up.  Once the bird hits 165 you can always toss it on a hot grill for a few minutes to crisp the bacon.  No shame in doing that! B

    If I do chicken or bacon wrapped anything at low temp I fire up Webber kettle to crisp. Sometimes my better half prefers cast iron skillet on stove with butter instead. Tell us how it tasted!

    We pull ours off the smoker at about 158-160 IT.

    Then finish on a hot grill.
