More Hanging Chicken Legs

edited September 2012 in EggHead Forum

Nothing fancy last night, just some hanging chicken legs. Really love these rack, saves room and no need to flip the chicken. Worry free. Half were seasoned with Dizzy Pig Swamp Venom and the other half got Sucklebusters Hoochie Mama. Cooked at 375F with some cherry wood for smoke, took about 40 minutes.

Served up with some pasta that Mrs. G whipped up, some green beans, some Simple Dinner Rolls and Johnsonville's new fully cooked sausage.

Chicken turned out fantabulous, as it always does when using the racks. I wanted to try and make the rolls on the Egg, but was a bit late getting started so they got cooked in the oven. Next time, I vow to bake them on the Egg. The new fully cooked sausage by Johnsonville.....I don't care how good a coupon you get....do NOT buy this stuff. It is not good. The texture reminded me of a hot dog and the flavor was not there. Can't remember which of the four I got, but I imagine none of them are going to be good. Won't try the other ones. Otherwise it was a great meal and I still have a leg or two for lunch.

    They really are handy. I can fit two on my large which really expands how many legs (or wings) you can do at one time. I think Doc uses them, too. I picked mine up at World Market, but you can usually find them at Home Depot, Lowes or online and generally on sale this time of year.

  • Nice cook. Have to find one of those racks for my Medium. 

    And we all looked because we knew it would be quality food, not due to some smutty, suggestive title like some folks rely on, right Doc?

    Where did you get your hanging rack?

    @Cullum - Like I said World Market. Answer was in the text you quoted. I don't know if they carry them anymore or if they are a seasonal item. You can also try Amazon.

    Sorry about that. Your pics looked so good that I got so excited that I didn't even read that
    :)) Thanks for all you provide on this forum. You seem to be an excellent cook!
