Chicken leq quarters with Qview

Discussion in 'Poultry' started by wlkwichita, Jul 18, 2010.

  1. I bought a ten pound bag of leq quarters and went to work, No brine... after washing the meat I applied a thin coat of EVOO and a light dusting of basic poultry seasoning. I smoked them over apple and pecan at 260-270F. When the meat temp hit 170 I cranked up the heatt to 320F and crisped up the skin a bit.

     They were wonderful. The meat was brimming with juice. The light seasoning complimented the smoky flavor, without overpowering the meats flavor.

     Also included were veggies from the garden, picked less than an hour before dinner. I LOVE garden fresh sweet corn. Looks like there will be a bumper crop this year.

    Throw that corn in the smoker.  It is amazing.  Peel back the husks, rub with melted butter salt and pepper, pull the husks back up and tie off the end.  Two hours in the smoke and it just melts in your mouth.  Picks up a nice smoke flavor.  I love putting green peppers in the smoker also and slice them for brats or burgers.  YUMMY

  9. Hi, I am Sean,

    YOUR chicken looks amazing! I wanted to find out what type of smoker do you use?
  10. The smoker is a Smoke Hollow vertical propane smoker. Don't remember the model number, but it is the 38 inch model.

    Leg quarters are my personal fav.  That and some fresh sweet corn?  Mmmmm, nice looking meal
  14. I like your minimalist approach, as in the no brine and just EVOO and S & P  I want to start doing more of that. Getting the most out of the smoke. I find I'm working to please the masses and tend to forget  " I'm cooking " and if they dont like or appeciate it. Let them eat Arby's.
