Un-Fried Chicken

After seeing @Doc_Eggerton 's beautiful Allegro legs, I got to thinking about doing some "fried" legs the same way. So I let some chicken legs get happy in a buttermilk bath (along with some paprika, DP Firewalk and rosemary/garlic) overnight in the fridge. Configured the XL for a raised direct session at about 400* and used a leg holder to do the cooking. Four of the legs got dredged in a flour/Firewalk/black pepper/Cookies seasoning mix, and the rest got coated in a bbq chip/sriracha chip crumb mixture. They turned out awesome! 
I didn't get them raised enough, so the tops got a little blackened - still tasty. I will try this again raised indirect so the breading doesn't get scorched, but overall I (and everone else) was very happy with the outcome.
