Prepare chicken by cutting down the back bone.
Season well with salt, pepper, garlic, and onions. You can also substitute with whatever you have on hand. The smoker adds a great deal of flavor so the goal is to complement the two together.
Smoke at 350 degrees for a minimum of 45 minutes until done. Make certain that the juices run clear, especially at the thickest part of the chicken. The leg quarters should be checked with an instant thermometer.
Remove from the smoker, cover with aluminum foil and let it rest for at least 10 minutes. This will redistribute the juices.
