    put in about 8 lbs of chicken legs  and 3 lbs of skinless breasts.(all I had available) into the smoker  I pretty sure the legs will be done before the breast .  temp trying to keep to 260.  about how long can I expect to have to smoke these till they need tocome out?

    At that temp they will take about 2 hours.  Internal temp is the best way to judge if they are done rather than time. If you have a thermometer .. The IT for legs should be about 175. Those breasts you have on should cook to an IT of 165.
