Here we have a grill that is used for smoking smoked frog legs be it gas smoked, charcoal smoked and also gas or wood smoking of frog legs, above you can see an electric smoker. You don't need a $500 high speed low drag smoker, all you need is some frog legs and something that makes heat basically and smoke.

What we won't do is to tell you what smoker is the best to use to smoke frog legs much less how to smoke any meat. That would be a whole other web site full of discussion. You can use the smoker that you want and already have, or if you are headed out to buy your 1st smoker or replace the smoker that you already have,.........you do you on that one and read up on the internet on the pros and cons for wood vrs coal vrs gas vrs electric vrs any other way that you want to smoke your frog legs. Personally we/I use an electric smoker as it is very very easy to control the smoking temps. If you are a die hard meat smoker and have been doing it for uphteen years and have it down to a science with wood because that is the best way and the only way to get frog legs smoked to perfection,...then great.

Now that you have your seasoned frog legs and you have your smoker prepared for smoking your frog legs, it's now time to actually smoke your frog legs. Times with smoking your frog legs may vary just a little bit but not much because as we stated above, the meat on a frog legs is not 10 inches thick and does not take hours and hours to smoke your frog legs. You may have to experiment with your frog leg some when it comes to smoking them because some frog legs are smaller, thinner and less meaty than some others depending on where you get them from. Some frog legs that you will be smoking are hefty to where 2 or 3 will make up one pound of frog legs raw. We suggest that you smoke your frog legs to an internal temp of at least 165 degrees. Once your smoker is up to temp right at 225 degrees, it will take ABOUT 45 minutes to 1 hour to smoke your frog legs. Anymore than that and you will really start to dry out your frog legs when smoking them unless your heat is not up at 225 and consistent for that 45 min to 1 hour.
