We smoked 120 lbs of leg 1/4s last Saturday for a charity car show.
Went to the store to get the wings and we brought all they had thawed. There were 2 different colored bags .Both 10 lbs and both labeled chicken leg 1/4s. was red bag ( smaller 1/4s) and yellow bag , (slightly larger 1/4s). We separated the thighs and legs
We smoked 4 loaded racks in a lang clone at 220 - 240 for 5 hrs. we timed it by the loaded rack.
The 1/4s from the red bags were perfect ,dripping w/ juice and tender. the 1/4 s from the yellow bags were juicy but tough, put the 1/4s from yellow bags back on for 2 more hours .Still juicy but TOUGH. I remember mama talking about never buying a hen unless you were going to boil it tender.
Anyone know the difference in the chicken in the different color bags? If they were hen wings would there be a difference?
The brand name was the same for both colors of bags.
Thanks , Bob
