CHICKEN LEGS

Wanting to smoke some chicken legs. I usually just do quarters and throw them on with whatever is on. What suggestions as to temp and time? I got a leg hanger for my birthday that holds a dozen in a rack. want to try it out!

any suggestions?

Chuck if crispy skin is important to you, cook the legs at 325 or higher, if it's not smoke them in the 245-265 range. Both are great, but the difference in temperatures will give you a different texture in the skin and meat.
