Hickory-smoked, bacon-wrapped, stuffed chicken breast
« on: September 18, 2012, 03:24:31 PM »
This was my 2nd smoke in my New OBS.  Words can't described how good this meal was.  I put two chicken breasts in a basic brine (water + .25 cup kosher salt + .25 cup brown sugar) for an hour [then soaked in cold water for 30 minutes], then pounded them flat and laid down a piece of provalone cheese and stips of red onion, bell peppers and minced garlic.  Rolled it up and wrapped it in bacon, secured with 2 toothpicks each.  Dusted with homemade chili powder.  Smoked with hickory for 2 hours and then cooked to IT of 165.

Thought sausage smokin' in the shed. Tickle in the kitchen just losin' that head.

Nice job!  Looks excellent!
Is it bad if my wife refers to the smoker as "The Mistress"?

Is it impolite to tell you that I almost drooled on my keyboard?

That looks amazing! Thanks for sharing.
