Smokin' full load of Chicken Breast! with Pix!
« on: June 23, 2012, 06:55:25 pm »
Decided to smoke a load of chicken breasts to wrap up and freeze for quick meals during the week!  ;)

Here are some pictures:



15 very large chicked breasts, brined overnight in the fridge, rinsed, dried and ready!



Thought I would try something different........ well different for me anyway I mixed 1 1/2 cups of mayo with 1/2 cup Jan's Rub to coat the chicken with.



All mixed up!




Into the Bradley they go! With 3 hours of smoke! Applewood baby!



Pulled them out when they reached an IT of 165.  We will wrap them and freeze them.  All we need to do when we want to eat them is thaw 'em out and throw them on the grill to warm them and crisp the skin!

best of luck with the mayo, I'm so anti-mayo and anti-cheese it's not even funny. I think I followed a post you had once before with mayo, maybe it wasn't you but it looked good, just not good enough for me to venture into. My childhood with cheese and mayo was a NIGHTMARE!!!!.

Just plain ol' Jan's Rub is all I need.

Those look really good!

Get you some Frogmats brother.  Chicken won't be hanging through your racks and clean up is much easier.

Bryan at Yard and Pool sells them custom sized to the Bradley racks.  www.yardandpool.com   Bryan is a trusted member of this forum and a good guy to boot.

Sorry you were traumatized.  I can see you being anti mayo but cheese never hurt anyone!!  ;D

I have been using the mayo to try to seal in the juices. Not sure if I really need to since I am brining.  The mayo is messy. I am probably going to try them without mayo next time and see if there is much different.

I have used mustard as a "binder" for flour or spices.  The mustard taste goes away when you fry or grill.  Just lightly coat the item (fish or chicken).
