I am going to work on some chicken this weekend
And have seen a recipe that calls for smoking
the chicken to 180 then placing in sauce for 1 hour
then crisping the chicken at 300 deg over coals 30 min
or less. Start with marinade and then a rub before smoking.

IF any one is using a sauce bath. I wanted to to know do they
keep it over heat for the one hour. Or just foil the top
using warm sauce to start with.

Is this leagel for comp. Are a lot of people using this methode

I dont know why it would be illegal.

It is legal, and there was a time when a lot of folks did it, but I don't think that many do any more.

Google Jumpin' Jim's chicken thighs if you want to know more about it.

I have done it, but really didn't care for it. You basically just end up grilling stewed chicken.

I was doing that for a while and scoring real well with it. I was going to 170 internal, then skin side down in the sauce pan, foil the pan and back in the smoker for an hour, then out of the pan on the grate for about 20-30 mins to set things up. Temps were usually 250-270 range depending on where the smoker wanted to settle in.

Not my prefered way to make chicken for home consumption, but it scored well.
