Do you flip chicken when smoking?
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. You may want to flip ribs or chicken twice while cooking. The best way to smoke a whole chicken is with a rotisserie smoker as it will provide the most even cooking.
How long does it take to smoke a split chicken breast?
Place the grill rack with the seasoned chicken breasts on it inside the smoker. Insert the attached probe thermometer in the thickest portion of one of the breasts. Close the lid and smoke for approximately 1-1/2 to 2 hours. At 1-1/2 hours, check the internal temperature of the meat with the thermometer.
What temperature do you smoke chicken at?
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.
