From the Test Kitchen
To smoke your own chicken or turkey, soak 3 cups of wood chips in enough water to cover for at least 1 hour. Brush 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast halves or turkey tenderloin lightly with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Arrange medium-hot coals around a drip pan. Test for medium heat above drip pan. Add 1 inch of water to drip pan. Drain wood chips. Sprinkle wood chips over hot coals. Place chicken on grill rack over the drip pan. Cover and grill chicken for 15 to 18 minutes (allow 25 to 30 minutes for turkey) or until tender and no longer pink (170 degrees F). (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Adjust for indirect cooking. Add wood chips according to manufacturer's directions. Place chicken or turkey on grill rack over burner that is turned off. Grill as directed.)
