Whenever I've cooked large amounts of chicken, it's been leq quarters, because they are cheap. I don't know that I've cooked hundreds of pounds though. What we did was put a big trash bag in a cooler, dump all the quarters in the bag, cover with a simple salt and brown sugar brine, let them sit in the brine for a few hours, and then throw some of the chicken seasoning from Sam's on them right before they go on the smoker.
