Hey I just found this site and have seen and read a lot of good stuff.
I am going to smoke skin-on bone in chicken breast and I wanting some suggestions of how long?
10-12 breast on a Brinkman Vertical charcoal smoker with top and middle rack.
Everything I have read has said to brine it so I will do that for 3-4 hours.
Thanks for any input

part of the answer depends on what temps you plan to cook at.

Cook it at 275-300. Pull it at 160 and let rest for 10-15 minutes. Time? About 60-90 minutes.

Also, go very light with the smoke.

Two to two and a half hours and light on the smoke. It is pretty easy to ruin a good piece of chicken with too much smoke.

I am a rookie but love smoked food.
How do I control the smoke more vent less smoke?
Thanks again

I agree with, Mitch. Don't go by time, internal temp only. A breast can become overcooked in a New York minute.
