Meal 4 – Chicken Legs with Italian Pasta and Potato Salad

It was a hot (for the PNW) summer day, so on August 16th, 2017, we served Chicken Legs.  I have a huge smoker, so 36 big legs was super easy.  And with no shredding this time, it was pretty fast work.  It is also berry season, so Carrie went out and picked a fresh desert!

We had 30 people, and they served leftovers at the evening food pantry session.
