Plan on flipping these cuts of meat at least twice, especially if you plan on putting a sauce on top of the meat to add to the depth of flavor.

How do you smoke chicken breast in an electric smoker?
Insert the probe into the thickest part of your chicken, and set the digital thermometer to 165°F. Hot Tip: When your chicken reaches 165°F, the smoker will stop cooking and turn on warm mode. Set your smoker to 250°F. Cook time will vary based on the size of the bird, but we estimate about 30 to 45 minutes per pound.
What temperature should smoked chicken be?
Smoked chicken will continue to cook once you take it out of the smoker. To prevent chicken from overcooking, take it out at 160°F so that it will reach the perfect target temp of 165°F by the time you are ready to eat. If you set your smoker to 250°F, estimate the cook time to be about 30 to 45 minutes per pound.
