Signature Smoked Chicken Quarters and Baked Beans

Signature Smoked Chicken Quarters and Baked Beans
It doesn't get more classic than Smoked Chicken Quarters and Baked Beans. And when you do it right you get some insanely tender chicken and a flavor explosion of smokey beans. Plus, you can cook both the chicken and the beans at the same time. We recommend you place the beans on the smoker first while you're prepping your chicken.
Cook Time: 45 min to 1hr 15 min
Prep Time: 10 min
Smoker/Grill Temp: 300ºF (Indirect)
Final Cooking Temp for Chicken Quarter: 180-185ºF

Instructions for Signature Smoked Chicken Quarters:

  • Trim any excess fat or skin from the chicken quarters
  • For best results, begin by brining the chicken quarters overnight or at least for 4 hours in Lane's BBQ Signature Brine. Rinse off, then pat dry.
  • Pull back the skin and dust our Signature rub lightly on the chicken
  • Return the skin and do and add a light coating of Signature rub for additional flavor and color
  • Place the chicken quarters on your smoker bone side down until it reaches 160ºF
  • Once the chicken reaches an internal temp of 160ºF, flip the chicken to skin side down (for crispy skin, raise your pit temp to 450º+)
  • Remove the chicken quarters when it reaches 180-185ºF internal temperature
  • For a classic BBQ flavor, glaze the quarters with Kinda Sweet sauce while the chicken is still hot (optional, you can also place the chicken back on the smoker for extra caramelization, but we only sauced it while hot and it's great)
