    Smoked a few legs, they turned out ok. I checked the temp and they showed 165-170 but they seamed a little under done. I used smoke for first 15 or so mins. And cooked about 1.5 hour @about 260.

    Chicken legs can go to 175 or 180 & still be moist.

    Also I would keep the smoke rolling the whole time.

    I see this is your first post, so at your leisure would you swing by Roll Call & introduce yourself.

    Then we all can give you a proper welcome.

    Yes....chicken legs and thighs can easily go to 175 and yes, keep the smoke going the whole time.

    What wood did you use?
