Nothing fancy last night, just some hanging chicken legs. Really love these rack, saves room and no need to flip the chicken. Worry free. Half were seasoned with Dizzy Pig Swamp Venom and the other half got Sucklebusters Hoochie Mama. Cooked at 375F with some cherry wood for smoke, took about 40 minutes.


Partway through the cook, taking on a reddish hue from the cherry wood

Served up with some pasta that Mrs. G whipped up, some green beans, some Simple Dinner Rolls and Johnsonville's new fully cooked sausage.

Chicken turned out fantabulous, as it always does when using the racks. I wanted to try and make the rolls on the Egg, but was a bit late getting started so they got cooked in the oven. Next time, I vow to bake them on the Egg. The new fully cooked sausage by Johnsonville.....I don't care how good a coupon you NOT buy this stuff. It is not good. The texture reminded me of a hot dog and the flavor was not there. Can't remember which of the four I got, but I imagine none of them are going to be good. Won't try the other ones.

A leg rack (can also be used for wings) is a really handy item to have. The drumsticks look great!

I see that you didn't use a drip pan. Was there any particular reason or was the chicken far enough away from the coals that flareups wouldn't burn the skin?

That's just the way I've always done them on the Egg, not sure why. I guess it worked the first time, so I've just kept doing them that way. With the small amount of air going through the Egg, flareups really aren't a problem with the lid down. And I guess its high enough up.

Leg racks really are helpful with the limited room on an Egg. I can get two on there if I needed, too and that really increases the amount versus laying them flat.

Looks great, Girffin! I just found a big bag of Chicken Legs in the freezer myself. Not sure what I'm gonna do with them yet. Thanks for the heads up about the sausage.

Nice work on the chicken legs. Please do try cooking some bread on the Egg. It's very good.
