I've stuck 12 a gallon deep in some mad hunky poultry brine and will be supper tonight! How long do you guys go and what temp to get a crispy type skin? Do you check internal temp on each leg or stick meat probes in 2 seperate legs and just go off that?

Youll wanna cook then north of 275- I shoot for 300. Depending on size..Id allow 45 mins. Prolly wont need it. but why not.

Check yer 2 biggest legs, but also remember brined..you can easily just let them hit 175 and not worry. I like well done AND moist/tender :{)

If you're using your new MES 40, try to stay below 300.

Set it for 275, and if it goes above 300, turn it down.
If it keeps going up, shut it down & call the Company (Masterbuilt).

Also check a leg from each end of a rack & each rack, in case your heat isn't balanced. My Gen #2.5 is balanced, but my old Gen #1 needed a heat deflector to balance left & right.

X2.... Vortex if you have one..... I won't cook/grill chicken on anything but a kettle anymore, as in ootside cooking.... like smoke flavor? Add a chunk of wood to the coals, above Vortex, or aluminum foil pouch of chips to the coals or above it. Higher temps, convection heat and a dry cooking environment will help render oot fat and crisp up your chicken. How well you like it done is up to you, we like it cooked a little longer, rendering oot fat and help in crisping the skin. If you prefer less rendering and less crispy skin, pull it off earlier. Personally, I did not like any chicken off my MES, when compared to a kettle or any other cookers/smoker. The air flow is restricted IMO in a MES. YMMV

X3. MH brine, the Weber kettle and the Vortex were meant for each other to cook chicken to perfection!

Occasionally I'll do leg quarters on the UDS. But I run it WFO as Slanted88 would say. Temps around 375 if I can keep 'em that high. The fat dripping into the coals smells good . . .

I feel that I can get a nice smoky flavor using my kettle at about 300* to 350* and the skin is nice & crispy. Turkey legs and chickens take about an hour, indirect heat. I turn the meat a couple of times during the cook to even out the heat exposure. I get a chimney of coals going nicely & dump 'em into the vortex and put a piece of wood over the coals. Then the meat around the vortex and cover. The best chicken I have had was done this way on my kettle.
