    djm5x9,
    I have had them a few times, but never cooked them. Ya have ta figger they gonna need quick high heat. Unless you got ya a real fatty frog! Seasonings?? Just like chicken!! Really F legs have a very mild flavor and should be seasoned lightly.[p]I guess you'll need a grill topper to prevent the lttle legs from fallin thru. Let us know what you end up doing.[p]NB

    djm5x9,[p]Season with Italian salad dressing. Cook 'em like a steak about two minutes a side and dwell for about one to two minutes depending on the thickness. Serve with a melted butter sauce.[p]We don't get them often, but I have mixed them up with some chicken wings and coated with serving sauce with good results as well. They take blackening seasoning very well too![p]Z [p]

  • Zip,
    Looks like we are on a similar wavelength tonight!
    Man, your idea sounds awesome. Maybe I need to get the flashlight and me hatchet, and take a walk back to the creek! I hear them suckers right now![p]Hope all is well.

    djm5x9, this isn't a BGE approach, but trust me, it's makes knock out frog legs and I've been doing them this way for years. I haven't gigged in 45 years and rely now on commercially raised frogs. Keep this receipe in mind when you want to give humpty a well deserved break, because this receipe is one where you want to keep a constant eye on things, but the reward is well worth your devoted attention. [p]Frog Legs with B and B Liqueur[p]Separate the leg joints at center with a knife. Soak in milk for two hours, drain, rub with crushed garlic and salt and pepper generously. Dust lightly with shifted flour. Saute in real butter until golden brown. Add a little water, cover, and steam until fork tender. Keep an eye on them as they can get overdone real quickly at this point. (If overcooked they are still good, but just not as good!) Then pour in some B and B Liqueur, light with a match to burn off the alcohol and steam just a little more. Real tasty food that will have you "hopping" for more. RRP
