Then Move to the cooking chamber with the legs/thighs facing the fire box ... bone side down. Persoanly I like the thigh meat to reach 170*-180* -- Time will depend on your fire, size of birds, number of birds, etc..Somewhere between 1 1/2 and 3 hours should do the trick, but check the thigh meat with a thermometer....

Have Fun!
thats good advice! If you can brining always helps and don't bother soaking your wood--that is one of the biggest bad ideas floating around the bbq/grilling world--
