Default Cold Smoked Chicken?

So, I fancy doing some cold smoked skinless chicken breasts.

Has anyone got any advice for these....brine or not, length of smoke (I'll be using oak and doing some cheese at the same time) etc,etc,etc

Cheers!

I haven't heard of cold smoking chicken & I'm not sure it's a good idea. What temp would you be smoking at? Chicken (or any uncured meat for that matter) that spends any significant amount of time between 40 and 140 farenheit runs a real risk of going bad.

That said, I wouldn't be surprised if someone one here knows a good and safe method for doing this, but based on what I know right now, I wouldn't do it.

Thanks GTR.

The temp. is apparently going to be 10°C or 50°F this weekend (when I plan on / if doing this)....maybe I'll stick to the cheese!

Thanks again Mate

gtr is right. Any "cold" smoked meats need to be cured first.
