Is Nature Boy around?

edited 7:31PM in EggHead Forum
Hello.[p]I'm wanting to try one of Nature Boys chicken recipes tonight. I'm using leg quarters as well. But mine are skinless, and I'm wanting to know if that will effect cooking temp / time?[p]Thanks!

    Howdy Timothy Reaves,
    Even though we don't eat the skin, I really like cooking with the skin on, as it self bastes the meat, but it will probably work well without skin...since it is dark meat. Which recipe/cooking method are you planning on using? I would probably go indirect at 375-400, brush the chicken with peanut oil before cooking, and maybe when you flip them. Should take around an hour or maybe a tad more for the whole leg quarters. One flip after 30 or 40 minutes should do.[p]Have fun!

    Timothy.
    Also, I wrote those recipes some time ago, and can suggest substitutions or eliminations if you don't have certain ingredients. also Have also figured some ways to simplify many of my recipes for when I am strapped for time. Fee free to email me if you have any questions![p]Chris

  • Nature Boy,[p]I was planning on the indirect as you have it; 400 degrees for one hour, turn, 30 minutes more.[p]So leaving the skin on won't subtract from the the marinade getting into the meat?

    Timothy Reaves,
    I usually peel the skin away partiially, then apply the marinade. When I cook, I move the skin back in place, and cook skin up for the first 45-60 minutes. Man I love ckicken. Even talking about it makes me hungry.[p]Beers
