      Excellent smokey flavor (I used applewood) and the bacon really helps keep the chicken moist. My first attempt at smoking and it worked brilliantly! I'm proud they came out looking a lot like Papa D's.

      Delicious smokey flavor! I used a mix of hickory and applewood....very nice flavor. I used low sodium, 25% lower fat bacon to try and reduce some fat calories, and these turned out delicious. I only had to cook my breasts for 1 hour 10 minutes over indirect heat to get them smokey, tender, and juicy. Thanks for sharing! Made for PAC Fall 2011.
