Hey all,

First time smoking and I went with yard bird leg quarters. The missus wasn't sure about letting me buy a smoker for my Christmas present, so I decided to show her it was okay. I brined the chicken overnight and threw together some spices to rub today.

Hit it with mesquite at 250* for three and a half hours and 275* for half an hour. I was going to do 275 for the last two, but had to make a beer run that turned into an adventure.

I broiled on lo for 20 minutes to crisp up the skin, it was just about the best chicken I've ever had. The pic is prior to the broil because I was going to try and entice the brother in law to come over.

Anyway, the missus definitely approves of the purchase, regardless of how she feels about the nickname.

Tasty looking bird! Glad she likes it.

Happy smoken.

Looks good. How long did you broil them?

I broiled them for 20 minutes which turned out to be a tad too long
