Chicken Leg Ideas

Kids want some chicken legs tonight.  What is the typical way to do these?  I don't have the hanger for them.  Was thinking indirect with some pecan wood but not sure how long or what temp to do them at.  

Thanks all in advance!

    Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos I like 400 direct raised. Cherry/pecan
    Salado TX Egg Family: 2 Large and a very well used Mini, added a Mini Max (I'm good for now).

    You can go indirect too. 375-400 dome. Cook until 180. around 45 minutes. Put on sauce the last 10 or 15 minutes to glaze them.

    Saying this in a very nice way; you are so wrong. 3 split fire bricks. 3 or 4 bolts and a weber grate. 3 beer cans.

    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.
