Has anyone had success with smoking skinless chicken? Thinking about trying it this weekend.

Grilling it is always a better option. If you smoke it, don't bring it to over 150 internal, then let it rest (covered immediately) until it's 165 internal.

Thanks CrazyChef & JDeSimone,

Unless I am cooking for someone who pefers white meat I do nothing but thighs and legs. This will be the first time I have cooked chicken on the Stump's, if it cooks chicken like it cooks everything else, it will be good.

My plan is to brine overnight, put a light amount of rub on, cook to 145 to 150, submerge in favorite homemade bbq sauce and put back in cooker for about 15 minutes to let the sauce tighten up.

Will let you know how it goes.

Boneless skinless is what I usually cook and I always brine them.

1/2 Gallon Water
1/2 Gallon Apple Juice
1 Cup Kosher Salt
1 Cup Splenda (You can use sugar instead)

I brine them for about 4-6 hours.

Smoke them at about 325 to a temp of 165-170 and I try to sauce them about 15 minutes before I pull them off the smoker.

I've said this before and I'll say it again. They come out so juicy that I almost have to serve them in a glass. Wink

Thanks cultofnobody, I did decide to brine this morning instead of overnight thinking that would be to long for chicken pieces. My finish temp will be 165.

I did this as well last week. My wife never liked chicken on the grill but she is already requesting it for dinner again. I didn't have to serve in a glass but they were very tender.

I am new to smoking and tried some skinless thighs. I am rubbing them just before putting them on and smoking them about 2 hours saucing them twice and cooking to 175 degrees. Flavor is good and they are moist inside. The problem is although they are skinless, the outside is very tough, almost skinlike. I don't know if it's the rub or cooking too low, only cooking at about 250, or what. Please help.

I've found anything less then 275 on poultry of any kind, makes for a less appealing surface texture. I just did a lovely 9 pound turkey at 275 - 300 in about 3 hours flat in the UDS. Was perfect, moist, smoky tenderness with a crunchy skin.

Smoking skinless chicken is not a good idea always because if you over smoke a little also spoils the whole thing..Instead grilling them is a easy ...

i said it bcoz more 2,3 times, i spoiled.
