Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

Smoking chk breasts...

Any suggestions on time and temp?  Also, should I brine these bad boys prior to smoking them?  If so, how should I make the brine?  Many thanks!

    400 dome raised direct. Takes about 45 min. 
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.

  • yes brine. cup salt/1/2 cup sugar/gallon water. 1-3 hrs in the brine and let dry in the fridge if you can

    I do 350 indirect but Travis' way is good too. personal preference.

    I usually see how Travis does it then do it another way :))

    I go about 2-3 hours in the brine. No more. Be sure to rinse well with cold water after pulling out of the brine.

  • 350 indirect for about an hour, depending on size, has always worked for me. Major face palm when relatives that were visiting didn't know that there's better ways to cook a chicken breast than to grill it to death.
