No big photo essay this time.  Legs well marinated in Allegro Hot & Spicy and cooked direct with mesquite wood.  Pretty darned spicy

    I bought some of the Allegro after seeing you use it so often. It's really good on chicken. Thanks for the rec.

    I'm going to try Allegra if it's that spicy. The chicken looks good.

    Nice looking legs there. I have always avoided mesquite with poultry, thought it would be too much. Might have to give it a try...

    These were marinated 48 hours.  It does have a kick, but these were stronger than usual.

    @hapster, do you have a Harris teeter nearby? They carry it in the sauce section, along with Bone Sucking Sauce. I have 3 bottles I need to do something with.

    @doc_eggerton, what is the average time you marinate them(12-24-48) Does the heat level increase with longer times? I know you did 48 this go around but do you normally do overnight?

    This thread has strayed a little, but my opinion is , Allegro Hot & Spicy for chicken (especially legs), and tougher cuts of beef, Yoshida's Teriyaki for any chicken, turkey thighs, and less expensive beef, Dichickos Garlic for wings and pork.

    I marinate everything at least 24 hours.  The legs were an interrupted cook and went 48 hours.  They were good, and a good deal hotter than normal.  Only negative I have ever had for long marinades was chicken breasts marinated in Italian dressing.  They were too Italian dressing
