I cooked some legs and thighs last night on my Memphis Pro (pellet grill) at 425 and they were done in about 30 minutes (180 internal). That was faster than i expected so i held them at 180 until the rest of the meal was done. They were good, but the skin was a little tough. I think they cooked too fast and the fat hadn't rendered yet.

If you have a heavy cast iron skillet or a big stone you can make a quick chicken under a brick. Shortens the cooking time a lot. Make a quick lemon, rosemary, garlic wet rub and coat. Comes out great. I do half chickens this way so I am sure it would work w quarters. Cook on the grill around 375-400 degrees and use a probe to check temp when done.
