Legs and Wings

Wings were last night, legs tonight.  This was just supposed to be about the legs, but the wing pics looked good so what the heck.

The original title was Pickled Legs, because the overnight marinate turned into a four day marinate.  Pretty spicy, but still delicious.  Done at 400, raised grid, for about 40 minutes until all the legs were at least 180.  Raw chicken is yucky.  Even well done they were dripping with fat.  Marinade was Allegro Hot & Spicy.

Wings were marinated in Dichicko's Garlic, and frozen for a week before thawing and cooking.  Done indirect, at 400 for about 40 minutes, until they looked right.  Nice and tangy.

    Doc, I noticed you like cooking legs.  Me too.  My fussy 4 year old doesn't complain about eating them.  Gotta use a sweet sauce for her.  Maybe we bamboozeled her good calling them "meat suckers"?

    Nice looking legs Doc and I ain't talkin' bout the kilt pic on the other thread!

  • Doc,

    With all the chicken you fix, certainly you save the bones and make chicken stock.  Don't you?
    I have some simmering right now.

    If not, I will tell you that homemade chicken stock is 1000 times better than what you could buy in the store.

    VI, I completely disagree!  Homemade is more like 1,000,000 times better that store-bought. 

    The unctuousness in homemade stock from the marrow can never be touched by a store brand. 

    Man, that looks so good. I want some soup!



  • Man, that looks so good. I want some soup!

    Hahahaha.  5 minutes ago, my wife said "I want some chicken noodle soup".
