OK I need some advice. I have volunteered to smoke some chicken legs tomorrow for a dish for the kids soccer party. Well being mothers day week end I was told I had lunch plans In the middle of the day. But I have to be at the party at 5:00. Oh yeah forgot to mention I've also already taken out and opened a rack of baby backs for (late night snack) which I need about five hours for. so here is my schedule.
leave for soccer game at 8:45
back home at 10:30
Leave for lunch at 1:15
back home by 3:00
leave for party at 5:15. With chicken
So I'm thinking my best option is start the fire at 10:30 and be able to get in 2 solid hours of smoke before lunch then wrap the ribs and put the chicken in a foil pan and cover. but then what do I do with it. It wouldn't worry me to much to leave them on the smoker while I'm gone or should I sit them in the oven on 200 and then back in the smoke when I get back. I would think if they are in the oven the chicken would be done. I don't know, HELP
Or am I just screwed.
