To prepare your chicken quarters start by removing any unwanted fat and skin from the bottom side. Next, apply a generous amount of Franks Hot Sauce to the outside of the chicken. It will seem like a lot, which it is but that's what you want! This will also act as a binder for our rub to stick to. After the Franks we applied our Postal Barbecue CHICK'N rub which was designed to go on chicken.
Once your chicken leg quarters have been seasoned, set up your grill for cooking around 275F. When your grill is up to temperature, place the chicken legs onto the grill opposite the coals. Next, add in your favourite hardwood to add a little bit of smoke flavour, then close the lid and begin cooking until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 175F. This should take around 130-140 minutes which is a little bit longer because we are cooking lower tempreture than we normally would for chicken.
Lastly, when you're have reached an internal tempreture of 165F open up the grill and apply a fresh coating of Franks to add a bit more of that spicy goodness to the chicken. Next close the lid and continue cooking to your preferred doneness. For this cook we brought the Chicken Leg quarters up to 175F.
Once your chicken has reached 175F, pull it off the grill and serve. mmmmm.... these are going to become a family favourite for sure!
