Frog legs

This Friday night I'm fixing one of our twice a year special suppers of frog legs. I've been buying them for several years from a "meat jobber" who works the state of Illinois and Missouri calling on us at home once a quarter. Anyway I have this favorite recipe which uses lots of butter, some garlic, a little flour and B and B liqueur. It's goooood stuff! While this particular recipe just wouldn't work on a BGE, I was wondering if anybody out there has perfected a frog leg meal on humpty?
Giggin' em as a kid was one thing as they were freebees, but now as a paying consumer that's another!

    RRP,
    I have not done them on the egg yet, but have eaten lots. If I was to do some, I would try ChefRD's Wing recipe...but for a shorter time, and slightly higher temps. The breading will hold in a bit of moisture, and add a bunch of flavor too. After the breading has browned a bit, baste it with your butter/garlic/B&B mixture for the last 10 minutes.[p]Just a suggestion. Enjoy!

    RRP,
    Somethings just do not fit the using the EGG in purity. Blasfimy, I know. If you saute them using an iron skillet then you could use the EGG to heat the skillet. I do Steak Au Pouire using the EGG where I heat the iron skillet in the EGG and enjoy the added flavor the charcoal gives.

    <p />RRP:[p]I have grilled them at higher temperatures (400º/425º) and have been pleased with the results. The trick is to cook till done and no more. I think next time I do frog legs I will follow Nature Boy's suggestion. ChefRD's wing recipe would be great on "fried frog legs". I like corn meal but use half of what he calls for.

    Mop:[p]Not at all . . . We are just sharing a common interest and learning from the experiences of others. I can taste those ChefRD frog legs now . . .

    Mop,
    whoa, frog legs are one thing and the next morning they are history, but what's with the "stainless steel appearing bands" and "lifters" in that picture???
