Smoking some leg quarters on the Akorn! QView

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Bought a 10 lb bag of quarters and brined them in saltwater, some garlic, 3 bay leaves, and some lemon juice. Seasoned with SPOG, paprika, and a little sugar. Gonna smoke around 290-300 and see what happens.

Temp jumped up to 340 on me. Hoping I can get it back down before disaster strikes haha. Live and learn. At least I'll only be out 6 bucks if it goes south. Will post QView regardless

Got an internal temp over 160. Hoping it isn't plywood dry. Skin shriveled up but tastes pretty good.

Thanks oldschool! Definitely going with a lower temp next time, but I was not disappointed with the taste. Never satisfied though. It can always get better.

They look good to me, the higher temp probably helped get the skin crispier.
