Well I picked up 30 chicken legs a while back on sale for $.99lb and they were getting a bit freezer burnt so I figured I better smoke them up. I made up a type of brine/marinade and soaked them over night. Basically water, salt, and a bunch of spices. I smoked them the following day for around 4.5 hours at around 200-245 degrees. Its hard to keep my little propane smoker at lower temps but it works perfect for chicken legs. I might have to install a needle valve on it some day.
The legs in my stock pot waiting for the liquid.
Here are my ingredients for my brine/marinade.
Here is the liquid.
Legs out of the brine and waiting to go on the smoker.
Smoker all loaded and the AMNS going at the bottom.
Here they are all done and cooling. I will package most of these up for snacks when we are fishing or for whatever. We just love these things.
