Smoked Coca Cola Chicken Leg Quarters

Coca Cola Chicken Leg Quarters are perfect for any get together!! The Coca-Cola brine is perfect to flavor your chicken for smoking!

Ingredients

  • 5 Leg Quarters Whole
  • 2 Liter Coca-Cola
  • 3 Tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 ⁄2 Cup Honey BBQ Sauce
  • 1 ⁄4 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 3 Tbsp Minced Garlic
  • 3 Tbsp Salt
  • Ice

Instructions

  • To start you need a large plastic container or bucket that has a lid.
  • Place your chicken in the container and pour a 2 liter of Coca Cola over the chicken quarters.
  • Next, add the rest of the ingredients to the container, on top of your chicken.
  • Use a whisk or shake the container well to mix everything up.
  • Add into the container your ice and make sure the chicken is fully submerged in the Coca-Cola brine mixture. (You may need to add more Coca-Cola)
  • Store in a fridge or cooler and allow the chicken to brine for at least 24 hours before smoking.
  • Be sure to keep checking up on the chicken you may need to keep adding ice to the mixture to keep the chicken cold. The chicken staying so cold helps the brine absorb into the chicken faster!
  • Start your smoker up with the water and wood chips to get good smoke going before putting in your chicken.
  • Spray your smoker racks with a non-stick spray or rub them with olive oil, this helps the chicken to not stick to it.
  • Place your chicken on the racks in the smoker. I maintain your smoker at about 225 degrees and smoke for about 3 hours.
