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.
