Masterbuilt Smoker Chicken Recipes
Making a chicken recipe on a Masterbuilt smoker is very easy. You can smoke a whole chicken or a small piece such as chicken wings or drumsticks.
Smoked Whole Chicken Recipe
- 1 Full roasting chicken
- Olive oil
- 1 tsp ground cumin
- 1 tsp ground cloves
- 3 tsp ground coriander
- 1 tsp ground cardamom
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- Pepper to taste
You must keep the chicken as flat as possible; wash and pat dry. Put all ingredients in a bag to combine well except the chicken. Put the chicken in this bag and squeeze out as much air as possible before sealing. Keep in mind chicken should be well coated with the mixture. Marinate in the refrigerator for some time, and then it is ready to cook.
Preheat your smoker to 110°C. Add about an inch of flavored liquid to the water bowl. Now lightly oil the rack. When the smoker reaches 110°C, put the chicken in it and lay it flat on the rack. Cook for about 3 hours or until internal juices run clear.
Masterbuilt Smoker Poultry preparations
Preparing poultry in a Masterbuilt Electric Smoker is a straightforward process. It is possible for you to Smoke a Whole Turkey or to smoke smaller portions, such as chicken wings or drumsticks. Your poultry should be Boneless for smoking because the skin and bones add flavor and moisture.
If smoking boneless and skinless, you must marinate the meat overnight to add moisture. Remember to rinse your meat portions in cool running water and dry them with paper towels before preparing them for the smoker.
There are also available ready-made marinades, barbeque sauces, or seasoning blends. However, it is good to customize your meal by making your seasoning. Marinating the meat for up to 4 hours is good to smoke, especially if you cook a giant turkey for several hours.
The marinate is easy, as simple as a mixture of olive oil, vinegar or citrus juice, sea salt, and your favorite dried herbs and spices. Always marinate in a glass or non-BPA plastic baking dish to avoid an adverse reaction from certain metals.
Place ice in the cooler to keep the meat cool. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and keep it in the refrigerator until 30 minutes before putting it in the smoker. But Allow the meat to come to room temperature before cooking.
Set Mindful Temperature
Chicken needs to cook thoroughly at a temperature of 165°F to 175°F. It also depends on the size; this could take anywhere from 2 hours for wings to approximately 6 hours for a turkey smoked at 225°F.
Remember that you can check the temperature of your wood chips and liquid with the Best Meat Thermometer For Smoking.
Rest the chicken
In the Masterbuilt smoker chicken recipes, remove your Masterbuilt smoker chicken to a clean cutting board and tent with aluminum foil when the smoking is finished. Allow it to rest for at least 15 minutes before serving. Please don’t skip this step, as it allows the juices to be reabsorbed into the muscle fibers.
