Smoked chicken Thursday

As usual the Mrs was watching the sales circulars and found boneless skinless chicken breasts on sale for $1.49/lb.  We used her secret marinade overnight, then onto our little bullet smoker for a couple of hours over charcoal and pecan wood from our yard.  After 2 hours we slathered on some sauce and let them smoke another 20 minutes.  The photo above is the finished product.  The meat was moist and tender with plenty of smoke flavor.  This back yard chicken is as good as any I have had at a restaurant and we have 8 pounds to munch on over the next few days.

Below are a few more pics of the process.
Chicks with marinade go into the smoker.
This is what we had after 2 hours.
Adding some sauce to the lower rack.  That extra long brush is very convenient.
