Simply Legs

I know many of you have seen these multiple times, but with all the talk of dieting I thought I would post one of our staples.  The skin is a no-no, but we eat some of it on these.

Marinated 24 hours in Alegro Hot & Spicy.  Direct, raised grid at 400 until the internal was 180.  It is easy to under do these, so let them cook away.  Usually takes 30-35 minutes.

Served tonight with a raw veggie plate.

Threw in a photo of the cook zone for the heck of it.  (note, no snow)

    Gorgeous!  I also did some legs today (simple teriyaki/soy sauce marinade) raised direct 420.  Took about the same time to finish.  Rave reviews from the family.  Might need to get one of those leg racks to efficiently organize and even cook on the grid.  I rotate the legs from hotspots every 10-15 mins or so.

    If you are OK with a little spicy, I thing the Allegro Hot & Spicy is the absolute best marinade for legs.

    I like the 1-2 zone defense that the eggs are playing :)

    Doc - you ever take the skin off prior to marinating?

    No, but we don't each much skin (except with wings.)  I do marinate boneless skinless chicken and turkey.

    Have done breasts and thighs without skin, then grilled like a souvlaki, never tried a skinless leg.

    @Doc Eggerton 

    I learned about "competition" thighs from nakedwiz.com.  It is amazing the amount of fat that can be removed. It's a pain in the butt to remove it and replace the "clean" skin but the thighs come out beautifully.
