    Internal of 170-175. Low and slow will tend to make the skin rubbery and tough. 300-325 and you are good.

    I put mine on at 325 and let them go for an hour. I have no idea what temp they are when I take them off but they are still very good!

    Depending on size, 45 minutes @ 325 should take them to about 175 and should be good. 165 is safe per the USDA, but I like them better closer to 175 or 180. Now breast meat, that's a different story.

    Course, you always could just grill them.
