Smoking some chicken quarters for the first time on a camping trip this weekend. I have a Chargriller Smokin Pro smoker, and I've been reading on here about how to smoke chicken quarters... Everyone is saying to smoke at higher temps, like around 300 to avoid rubbery skin...
I can't get my smoker that high with fire in the firebox! At least I never have been able to before... I usually smoke pork at around 225-250 and I get fantastic results.
Then I might use it as a grill for steaks and burgers and can grill at 300-350 or higher very easily. But should I do it that way for these chicken quarters???? just not use the firebox?
I have done virtually no mods to the smoker, as I also use it as a charcoal grill. And most of the mods look as though they would not work well for this... But I do, when smoking, flip the pan that holds the charcoal over and slide it over towards the firebox. To act as a baffle.
Any tips or ideas would be much appreciated!
