Default Chicken Breast Question

I am wanting to smoke boneless skinless chicken breast. How long does it usually take and what should the internal temp be?

That's gonna be a tough smoke unless you are just going to grill them hot and fast as you would regularly and add some wood for smoke flavor.

Boneless, skinless, chicken breast dries out really fast. You can brine it before hand, but I don't think you are going to be happy with your result doing boneless, skinless breast. If you really want a good smoked chicken breast, do a whole skin-on bird. They are super easy (I just throw mine on the smoker, no brine, no nothing) and you will have two juicy delicious smoked breasts, along with the rest. You can just peel the skin off after.

We are constantly cooking those for our youngest boy. We normally put the coals on one side of the kettle, and a few breasts on the cool side. Let them sit there for a little bit, then directly over the coals for about 2 minutes a side, until cooked. After that, back to the cool side for some more smoke absorption, until all of the chicken is cooked.
