First Smoke on my ECB chicken legs and a whole bird

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So i bought a Electric brinkmann last night. i got it seasoned up and made up some rub and a sauce. Then today I lit/plugged(im new to the electric smoker deal lol) her up at 2 pm and the legs where done around 5pm and the whole bird is smoking away. i dont think the legs turned out to bad for the first trip. they had good taste, the meat was really tender and juicy but the skin was a little tough. the whole birds getting real close to being done.





forgive the fake snow on the windows lol


the whole bird is getting close

Yep, you have to get the temps in the smoker up to the 300 to 325º range to crisp up the skin.

so you grilled at the higher temp, then smoked them at a lower temp?

Nope, always smoke first, then grill. And by grilling I mean move them to a hot charcoal or gas grill. The pores in the meat usually start shutting up around 140º internal and smoke will not be accepted internally into the meat, so do your smoke, then grill.

Great looking chicken, I had the same problem with the rubbery tough skin.
