Why Smoke Chicken Legs

Look for fresh pieces that have a clean smell and don’t feel gummy to the touch.

Picking Out Chicken Legs

The dry rub has a little sweet and a little heat from the brown sugar and smoked paprika, with the chili and chipotle, adding heat and pizzaz.

This smoked chicken rub is a simple seasoning for smoking any cut of chicken that is packed with delicious flavors.

We recommend smoking chicken legs at 250℉ (121℃) for an hour and a half or so until their internal temperature reaches 175℉ (79℃).

There is a tanginess to hickory and mesquite wood chips that complement the dry rub’s sweetness while adding to the smoky flavor found in the best-smoked chicken.

The best way to crisp up the skin on smoked drumsticks is to use a hot grill for a few minutes at the end.
