Sweet and Spicy Smoked Chicken Quarters Recipe
In this recipe for smoked chicken quarters, sweet and spicy come together to bring out the contrasting flavors of maple syrup and thai chili sauce.

Set smoker to 220°F and smoke chicken for about 2 hours, or until the digital meat thermometer reads at least 165°F.
