thanks to everyone for the comments. i've always thought making stuff yourself is better, both in quality and in price, than you can buy. besides, i got tons of time now!

it's fairly simple, use 1 tbsp honey and 1 1/2 tsp salt for each 8 oz chicken breast put them in a bag (i used a vacuseal bag) for 2 days, i also sprinkled in some of my house rub. pull them out, rinse and soak in water for an hour or so. the hardest part was making the log. i overlapped two breasts point to point, and then overlapped the rest with the points going tin the same direction. tying it was a PITA because they kept wanting to slip apart, but it is tied like you would tie a roast. after it was smoked i let it sit overnight in the fridge to make slicing easier. when i sliced it some of the individual breast pieces came apart, but overall it held together pretty well. i think for the net one i'll get full breasts from a butcher so the log will be bigger, and i'll use less breasts in each log to help with tying them.

here's where i found the recipe that i used torihamu article
