    Mike in INDPLS,[p]I Just put one on 5 minutes ago...[p]My technique:
    -Inject Breast with Chef Williams Creole Garlic Butter Marinade. ( or whatever injector marinade you prefer).[p]-Sprinkle liberally with Spice Hunter Poultry Grill and Broil, and Dizzy Dust. (Dizzy Dust by itself is Great)[p]-Cook indirect over drip pan and Firebricks in Egg @350*, with water soaked pecan and apple wood, till it reach’s an internal temperature of 160*[p]Let rest for 15-20 minutes and Enjoy.[p]Pointer[p]

    Mike in INDPLS,[p]I do a lot of these and they come out wonderful. You can see the setup and the directions I use at the link below. I have yet to ever brine one of these breasts - I might try one some day but the results have always been so good I never felt the need.[p]Tim

    Tim M,[p]I do them pretty much the same as you. Olive oil and a little Kosher salt and pepper.[p]Like you stated I've never brined either because they are just so tasty and juicy anyway.[p]Keep em Smokin,

    pointer, I agree..I mix it in a few tablespoon of peanut oil and work it all over under the skin and on top. During the cook, it spreads its flavor. One of my favorites.
