First Chicken?

  1. Leg and thigh quarters-MES at 275 deg cooking to 170 took about 2 1/2 hrs. Sound about right?
    Thanks for any help.
  2. fire it up

    Yup, sounds about right to me.
    As always, temp not time but 2 1/2 is a good estimate.

    Just remember at 275º you will probably have some rubbery skin. Not that you should really eat it any way [​IMG]
    You gonna toss it on a hot grill to crisp them up?

    Like they all said temp not time 2 1/2 is good but that was that bird the next could go faster or slower. You can smoke them then throw the chicken on a regular grill to crisp the skin or you can rise the heat in the smoker easy if you have a gas smoker. One thing with smoking many things at the same time always keep the bird on the lower grates not on top of anything. Happy Smoking.
