Sometimes frozen chicken will do that(was it frozen?)
otherwise the goal would be to get the temp up in your smoker.
if this is not an option finishing them in the oven is oblidged.
First ask yourself if you just were impatiant and maybe shoulda let em go a little more but were too hungry?

In my expierence, smoked chicken will most likley be pink in the middle. Use a paper towel and dab next to the bone. If it comes out red, you probably have blood and need more time in the smoker. If it comes out clear, enjoy.icon_smile.gif

The best way to determine if done is a temp probe. 165* for chicken.

Now I have always done all my chicken in the smoker the whole time. Now sometimes you just have to let things take their time specially smoking and they don't call it low and SLOW for nothing. You just need to learn how to let it smoke at it's own time and it will be really good and not commode hugging good

like my sig states: "if it starts in the smoker it finishes in the smoker"

For leg quarters I usually plan on around 3 hrs. in the smoker if my chamber temp is 225-250. But I don't pull it till the internal meat temp hits 165° - sometimes happens faster than 3 hrs., but sometimes not.

Low, Slow, have a few beers.... and enjoy a good dinner! icon_cool.gif

Mine are never done at the 2 hour mark at 225-250. Give it another 45-60 minutes next time and they'll be great. Best bet is to check them with a thermometer. They never lie (as long as you know they're correct)...
