    Hey all,

    looking for a new recipe for smoked chicken legs, doing a family cook out in 2 weeks, 50 people. Costco had a good deal on chicken legs. Here is what I normally do salt, pepper, and garlic rub in smoker at 325 for about 2.5 hours. What I'm looking for is a sweet spicy kind of rub, thinking of hickory and apple wood for the smoke. Any thoughts? I don't normally brine chickens, but do baste at half way point with lard. I have also tried dipping chickens in white sauce after the smoke but didn't really care for the sauce, I felt the horseradish overpowered the chicken and smoke. Let me know if you got a great recipe.

    Thanks all,

    I have a suggestion... Italian Dressing. It's inexpen$ive and a great go-to Marinade. For your heat profile, use ground Chipotle Chile.

    Have fun and . . .
