Smoked Chicken Legs
Smoked Chicken Legs are a smoky, delicious way to enjoy chicken legs. They're packed with flavor and can be enjoyed dry or with your favorite BBQ sauce.
Preheat smoker to 275 degrees F. (This prevents leathery skin from developing)
Drizzle the chicken legs on all sides with the olive oil and season with the sweet rub.
Place the chicken legs on the smoker, close the lid, and smoke for 1 1/2 hours or until the internal temperature of the legs reaches 175 degrees F. Optional: At 165 degrees brush the chicken legs with your favorite BBQ sauce (you can thin out your BBQ sauce with apple juice to give you a nice glaze vs. a thick BBQ sauce).
Remove the legs from the smoker. Let them rest for a few minutes and enjoy!
