Anyone got any advice on cooking quarters

post #1 of 11

tried to smoke them took to long, cook them to fast and they are not juicy whats the plan for these

Well smoking is a low and slow process, I haven't seen a microwave smoker yet.

Just plan ahead and allow time for smoking. Nothin' beats some good chicken quarters cooked low and slow - approx. 3 hrs., till you get a temp of 175-180 in the thigh. Keep your smoke chamber around 215-225°, and they will come out super juicy, moist, and tastey!!

I smoke my chicken at 300-325 to get the skin right.  I inject with apple juice and s&p.  then rub the skin and upder it.  As said on 180 on thighs

i just did a bird @300-325........came out great

A brine sure helps w/moisture for the low and slow, ie 225-250.  Pop it up to 275-300 and see how that works. 

 

good luck

 That is the dreaded chicken skin. There are a few ways to deal with that, but most are faily labor intensive for a quick dinner. You basically have two choices smoke the chicken low and slow then finish it on a high heat grill for 10-15 minutes to crisp the skin, or smoke the chicken at higher heats (325-375°), but it might not be as tender and juicy.

 

..... or if you are like me and my family I just toss the skin to the dogs and enjoy the meat!
