How to Get Crispy Skin on Barbecue Chicken
by: Joseph

Hi Reginald,

Thanks for asking a great question!

Tough, rubbery skin can be a challenge when cooking low and slow. Chicken skin will not get crispy or have a good bite through until it reaches a high enough temperature.

Fortunately, the fix is simple; You raise the temperature of your cooker to about 350°F (177°C) during the last 30 minutes or so of cooking.

Experiment with the time and temperature to get the results you like.

For step-by-step details, check out my Barebcue Chicken Thighs Recipe It works great with leg quarters, too!

Let us know how your leg quarters turn out.

If there's anything else you need let me know.

Happy Cooking!
