How do you get that shap of the chickens you put in the box? Almost round shape? do you form theighs before or after smoking?

Shape it pre cooking. Whether is is through knife skills, or cramming it in a muffin pan, the basic shape is pre cook.

The oval shape does come from putting them in muffin pans.

i don't turn in thighs, i hate cooking them, and trimming them. The way you need to trim and cook them for a comp is a complete bastardization. We cook legs, skin's thinner, always bite thru, and personally id rather take 1 bite of a well cooked leg than a bite of a strange looking thigh

How do you do with legs??? I hear 90% turn in thighs. I would like to do legs but if legs don''t win then thighs it is
