    I cured some chicken legs with cure #1, kosher salt and CBP.

    7 days later I smoked them with hickory for 4 hrs.

    Then tossed in flour and deep fried [​IMG]


    2 hrs in


    After 4 hrs, placed in Z-Loc bag and refrigerated over night.


    Tossed in flour and deep fried for a mighty tasty dinner!

      Thanks John,

    I've tried this before but wasn't pleased with the results.

    This time I added ½ cup kosher salt and it came out great.

    It doesn't taste like chicken, more like a deep fried turkey ham kinda, sorta flavor [​IMG]

    Interesting idea.  It reminds me of Pops' treatment of ribs.  He called them "Bacon on a stick".

    How as the chix bacon on a stick?

    Good luck and good smoking.
