Local meat market had 1.19 a # chicken quarters. Started preheating and then rinsed chicken dried with paper towels and put a random rub seasoning on. Hadn't tried it before but will be shown in the picture. I put all four on a rack that I put on the second rack of the MES 30 set at 275. Started in the smoker at 12:15 with maple pellets. Chicken started dripping on smoker so I added a better drip pan. On the third rack at different positions.where I put it really made the temp reading swing a great deal. At 16:30 read the IT temp with a reliable probe. 174 on the largest. 195 on the smaller one. Turned off smoker at this point and got ready to eat. Here's final pics The meat was tender and the skin was crisp but the taste wasn't what I had hoped. The smoke ended up very light and the rub wasn't as flavorful as I was hoping. Being my first chicken outing I'd give it an average c. Maybe I should have brined or put rub on the night before or just used barbecue sauce? I wanted to try to do something with butter and vinegar but didn't know how to try. Better luck next time.
