Smoked Chicken Breast
- 1/2 batch chicken brine optional but highly recommended
- 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts
- 1/3 cup BBQ spice rub homemade or store bought
- 1 cup BBQ sauce homemade or store bought
Follow the brine recipe as instructed, cutting all the ingredients in half. Place your chicken breasts in the bowl of brine, cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.
Remove your chicken from the brine. Pat dry. Preheat your smoker to 250 degrees F.
Coat the chicken breasts with the spice rub.
Place the chicken in the smoker and cook for 60-90 minutes or until a thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the breast registers 165 degrees F.
Brush the chicken breasts with the BBQ sauce then smoke for an additional 10 minutes.
Let the chicken sit for 5 minutes. Slice and serve with any remaining BBQ sauce.
