DISSOLVE 2 tablespoons of salt into the apple juice and add the sliced jalapenos.
IMMERSE chicken legs in the brine mixture and refigerate for 2 hours.
REMOVE the chicken legs from the brine.
TRIM chicken legs so will stand on the cut end
WRAP one slice of bacon around each chicken leg and, if needed, pin the bacon with a toothpick.
COAT all sides with House of Q House Rub.
PREPARE your Yoder Smokers pit for indirect cooking and set for 275 degrees.
PLACE chicken in the pit and smoke until the temperature of the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 150 degrees.
POUR the House of Q Apple Butter BBQ Sauce and jalapenos into a pot and warm
DIP each leg into the sauce, then place back onto the grill until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 170 degrees.
PRO TIP: Make sure the bacon has rendered onto the leg. It should look dry and somewhat crispy. This is the secret to great results!
