    Sunday I did a quick smoked chicken on my weber 22" 

    I set it up for indirect heat. I had it running at 315 deg for the entire smoke time of 2 hours.

    I smoked it over lump charcoal and apple wood chunks. I took it to an internal temp of 165 in the breast

    and 170 in the thigh 


    The finished product. The skin was nice and crispy.


    Then I served it with roasted broccoli and hash browns.


    It was fantastic. 

    The next day I took the left overs and made smoked chicken salad to make sandwiches for the week.


    And that was even better.

    3 Cups diced Smoked Chicken

    1 Cup Mayonnaise

    4 Spring Onions chopped

    3 Stocks of Celery chopped

    1/2 Cup Diced Honey Crisp Apple

    1/4 Cup Golden Raisins 

    1 Tea Spoon of Garlic Powder.

    Salt and Pepper to taste.

    Of all the smokes, a plain old nekkid chicken is hard to beat.

    Quick update: I still had some of the smoked chicken leftover from making the chicken salad for lunches.

    So I took the 1-1/2 cups of leftover chicken and made a Smoked Chicken Pizza. 


    Its a pre made crust with BBQ sauce, chicken, onions, cheese and mushrooms.

    It made a great meal for the two of us last night.
