I give up! I've smoked whole turkey to perfection as well as whole chickens. I've had no success with bird parts! I used Pops brine for three days, rinsed the turkey drums and put them on a rack in the fridge for 12 hrs. Put them on the smoker at 300 and they hit 165 IT in 1.5 hrs. I thought it would take much longer. I took them off the smoker and rested. I didn't wrap, I wanted bite through skin. The flavor was great, and the meat came off the bone cleanly, but it wasn't tender. I promised the guys at work some awesome drums and have nothing.
