Smoke time for Chicken Legs with thighs attached

Discussion in 'Poultry' started by jerimiah, Mar 14, 2010.

  1. Put these in the fridge last night with my special rub and they are ready to go in the smoker. Going in at 230F but I have no idea how long they should stay in? THis is my first attempt at chicken and I dont want to over/under cook them. Is 4 hours too much??

    Don't think time, think temp, I would cook till 185 as it is dark meat

    Put a probe in the thick part of the thigh and take them off at 170'.
  4. I just put the probe in one of the thighs (currentlt 92F). Thanks for the advice guys!! I will try to post the results later today.
