    Decided to do some of my Jamaican Jerk Rub chicken legs.  Also whipped up a batch of Dutch's "Wicked" baked beans.  The wife made her contribution to the meal by fixing some pasta salad. After lightly spraying the legs with olive oil, I put my jerk rub on them and let them marinate for 6 hours. Legs were smoked at 270 degrees w/hickory for 3 hours.  Skin was crispy and the meat was moist.

    Nice job - love that drum stick holder too. Have you posted the jerk recipe? I did a quick search and it did not come up

    Haven't posted it yet.  I'll do that this evening.  The Lowes in my area was closing the leg holders out for $2.49, so I bought 4 of them.  I had not used them before, but they work pretty well.

    The legs look wonderful and tastey I bet??? Now how did they taste ????Were they spicey cause Jerk is suppose to be spicey???? But it's the flavor that you are going for I guess.

    Yep, they were tasty.  They were spicy but not overtly hot.  Good blend of heat mixed with flavor.  Not quite enough heat to make your sinuses drip, but you know it's there begging for a cold beer.

    Looks might fine I have one of those racks but haven't used it much. How many were you feeding? I always see all this great food but when i cook it's usually for two (more like 1.25 wife doesn't eat much at all-cottage cheese, etc) [​IMG]

    I was just cooking for my wife and I.  I did 20 legs so it made it worth my while to fire up the smoker.  We both take left over to work for lunch, and my daughter will be over this evening for the balance of the leftovers.
