It could be that I’m the last one in on this secret. But just in case there’s someone else out there who doesn’t know, I’m going to share it with you.
I’m a very impatient cook. You might have caught on about that fact since most of the recipes on this site can be made (hands-on prep) in just a few minutes.
For this reason, I’ve never had luck grilling chicken that has bones. I do great with boneless chicken breasts. Pork chops aren’t too hard (not including one fire incident the neighbor kids still talk about). Smoked sausage or ham slices are no problem.
But chicken with bones is a whole ‘nuther deal. Memorial Day weekend we had lots of company and I bought a bunch of chicken legs. I planned to do them in the oven, just because I feared burning them beyond recognition if I put them on the grill. But my mom talked me into doing it and I’m glad she did. Those legs were scrumptious – smokey and sticky with bbq sauce. Mmmmm!
