Sweet And Smokey Coca-Cola Chicken

Ingredients

  • 5 leg quarters whole
  • 2 liter Coca-Cola.
  • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 ⁄2 cup honey BBQ Sauce
  • 1 ⁄4 cup brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 3 tablespoons salt
  • Ice

Instructions

  1. Take a large plastic container or bucket and place your chicken in it.
  2. Pour the 2-liter of Coca-Cola into the container over your chicken.
  3. Add the other ingredients to the container (on top of your chicken). Mix well.
  4. Add ice to make sure the chicken is fully submerged in the Coca-Cola brine mixture.
  5. Soak your chicken in the Coca-Cola. brine combination for about 24 hours before smoking. Be sure to keep adding ice to the mixture to keep the chicken really cold. The chicken staying so cold helps the brine absorb into the chicken faster!
  6. Start your smoker up with the water and wood chips to get a good smoke going.
  7. Spray your smoker racks with a non stick spray (optional).
  8. Place your chicken on the racks in the smoker. Keep your smoker at about 225 degrees and smoke for about 3 hours.
  9. *Be sure to use a food thermometer to make sure your chicken is cooked to the right temperature!
