I haven't done any poultry in my smoker yet.. I try and remember to take pics (I ain't no photographer)!

I going to do an Apple juice based brine and then smoke over Applewood. If they turn out, I'll post the recipe.

Wish me luck!!!!

P.S. I have a Char-Broil Deluxe XL Digital Smoker coming. I would love a Green Egg or a Traeger, etc., but they are out of my price range.

Good luck! Sounds like it should work out! Looking forward to seeing pics, Chicken quarters are pretty forgiving, so you should be in good shape!

Yea I feel like the BGE ‘s have gone up in price over the last 5-7 years.. although, honestly what hasn’t..

i prefer apple cider and brown sugar mix for marinade or a brine, apple wood chips are good for chicken.

Good lick Burl! What are you smoking on until the new unit arrives? Once it does you'll want to be storing inside the garage during winter. RAY

A Char-Broil 30" analogue.

Our winters here aren't that rough, we've only had one instance of snow all winter. I've smoked all winter, and when my unit has trouble making temp, I wrap it in cargo blankets. The way the handles are configured, there's plenty of room for the smoke to escape.

All rubbed up

Here is what I turned out several hours later.

I was asked for my Rub recipe, so here it is:

2 TBSP Paprika
2 TBSP Brown Sugar
2 tsp salt
2tsp black pepper
1tsp onion powder.

With the cold weather we had today I couldn't get the temperature up in my smoker. These were done with average temp of 260F

Even with the time it took to smoke, these quarters are juicy. When I used my handheld instant read clear juices came out.

Yes sir you could put that on a plate for me no sides needed. Your rub looks good and a simple mixture easy to make
