    Not fruity at all, just a nice smoke flavor. Apple is another that's pretty good for not overwhelming the meat.

    Brisket is supposedly tough but I've never tried one.

    thats what i hear too. don't really want to do just drumsticks or thighs, but also don't want to do a whole bird. might buy one though and cut it into quarters. it's that, ribs, or a big thing of pork. i think i have a couple decent size pork roasts in the freezer.

    Do a turkey breast. That's a couple day process because you'll want to soak it in a brine overnight.

    was thinking about doing my turkey this year in teh smoker. bought a bullet smoker years ago for that purpose, but it was a cheapo. i got this electric one off my neighbor about two years ago, and just now feel like using it. prob won't smoke my own whole one though. i get a free pre smoked one every year from work and its delicious.

    roast took only 3 hours, and was delicious. store down the street has chicken leg quarter in 10 lb bags for $5 right now. i think it's 8 total quarters.......got 3 in some random bbq marinade i made this morning, and the other 5 just seasoned garlic/herb. heating the smoker up now..........we gonna have a **** ton of food :lol:

    forecast is pissing me off. was planning on eating something light this evening, and having a batch of chicken wings come out of the smoker for the mizz game. haven't smoked wings yet. yesterday it was 100% rain all day so i cancelled the plan. its been staying away so i got some wings on my way home. now it's saying a chance but only during the time frame i'd actually be smoking. might have to get a fan and smoke these fools in the garage :lol:

    I don't have one, but I use my mom's sometimes. I need to get one because I'm tired of paying $6+ for a cup.

    Definitely find one that's advertised as easy to clean as they can really be a pain.

    • 1 1/2 pounds Thin Cut Chicken Breast (I always buy whole breasts and make cutlets)
    • ¼ cup Lemon Juice
    • ½ cup White Wine
    • 1 cup Chicken Stock
    • 6 Thin Half Moon Slices of Lemon
    • 2 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
    • 5 Tbsp Butter, divided
    • 2 Tbsp Capers
    • 2 Tbsp Fresh Chopped Parsley (only use ½ Tbsp if using dry)
    • All Purpose Flour, for dredging
    • 1 Medium Shallot, chopped
    • 2 Cloves Garlic, chopped
    • Salt and Pepper to taste

    • 1) On medium high heat, preheat the olive oil in a large deep nonstick skillet.

      2) Season the flour with salt and pepper. Dredge 2 tbsp of butter in the seasoned flour and set aside.

      3) Dredge the chicken breast into the flour shaking off any excess flour and set aside.

      4) When the oil is hot add 1 Tbsp of butter, when the butter is melted, add the chicken and cook for 3 to 4 minutes on each side or until the chicken is cooked through (you might need to do this in batches). Remove the chicken from the pan and add the shallot in with the pan juices. Cook the shallot until soft and translucent about 2 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds.

      5) Add the wine and let it cook for 2 minutes, just until all the alcohol cooks out and the wine reduces by half. Add the chicken stock and 2 Tbsp of butter and season with salt and pepper. Cook until the liquids reduce by half about 5 to 6 minutes. Add the chicken back in with the liquids and add the capers, the 2 Tbsp of flour-dredged butter and the lemon juice. Cook for 2 minutes or until the sauce thickens, add the parsley and lemon slices and cook for 30 seconds.
    It's a great recipe. The picture was a doubled recipe as I was cooking for 6 people. I always serve it with angel hair pasta.
