grilling as opposed to smoking produces this superior product. The chicken however has to be continuously tended for a period of time, about 1-1/2 hours. It is worth every minute.

10 pounds chicken leg quarters - - OR
2 chickens, cut into quarters
apple cider vinegar, mixed half/half with water or apple juice
"Badia" lemon pepper seasoning

* Prepare the chicken for grilling. Trim and wash to desired condition.
* Mix the apple cider vinegar/water into a spray bottle.

* Salt and pepper the chicken. Allow the chicken to cook for about 10 minutes. (careful to keep flair-ups to a minimum. Closing the lid of the grill usually does it.)
* Turn the chicken salt and pepper again. Cook about 5 minutes. (careful to keep flair-ups to a minimum. Closing the lid of the grill usually does it.)
* Continue to cook, flipping the chicken, in the same manner of 10 minute- 5 minute intervals. Remember the white meat goes on the grill after the dark meat has been cooking for 20 minutes.and gets salt and peppered like above.
* NO MORE SALT AND PEPPER after it has been applied the first time.
* Periodically spray the chicken with vinegar mixture. Two or three times during the cooking process will be enough.
