So chicken is my favorite thing to smoke. With 4 kids & a wife, I smoke a lot of chicken on a weekly basis. I found two different styles of chicken leg racks at the store and of course had to try them both out. I really like the racks because it allows me to maximize my grilling area. Here are my opinions on them:
1. Upside down rack - I like the this rack because the finished product looks nicer. The only issue is that they are hard to mop and some of the smaller legs fall out of the holders. Another upside to this setup is that it can potentially hold more legs. Legs can be placed the in open spaces seen below, but it would defiantly get crowded and would probably make a negative impact on the presentation.
2. Right side up rack - When the legs are done being cooked they are not near as pretty as the upside down rack. The meat of the leg is missing that tasty crisp look. The upside to this rig is that the legs are super easy to mop and it doubles as a stuffed jalapenos rack (I have not doubt it started as a jalapeno rack). It will hold up to 18 wings, but it gets pretty crowded.
If you guys have any thoughts or different chicken leg rigs please post.
