Grilled chicken legs or chicken leg quarters are a great way to feed a large group. They're cheap, great for feeding a crowd, and easy to prepare for kids. Grilling these chicken drumsticks in my own Honey Barbecue Sauce has made them even more delicious.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR MAKING BARBECUED CHICKEN LEGS

Depending on what you have on hand, you can use whole chicken legs or chicken leg quarters in this BBQ chicken legs recipe.

Rub- You probably already have everything you need in your kitchen to make the best BBQ rub ever. Simply combine brown sugar, chili powder, cumin, salt, pepper, and olive oil.

Ketchup, white vinegar, molasses, honey, salt, pepper, dry mustard, paprika, garlic powder, and onion powder are all you need to make my homemade honey barbecue sauce. Coat your chicken legs and have some left over for dipping or storing in the fridge.

The Proper Way to Grill Chicken Drumsticks for the Barbecue

  1. Before grilling these BBQ chicken legs, make a batch of this Honey Barbecue Sauce. (If you prefer, you may substitute any bottled sauce of your choice.) )
  2. After that, get the gas grill to about medium-high heat or the charcoal started.
  3. BBQ rub ingredients (brown sugar, chili powder, cumin, salt, pepper, and olive oil) should be mixed in a small bowl and applied to each piece of chicken by hand while the grill is preheating.
  4. Coat the chicken legs with the mixture, and then place them on the grill with the meatiest parts facing the flames.
  5. The legs should be cooked for about 5 minutes per side over medium heat. Rotate your legs three or four times for even cooking. Slather on the barbecue sauce after each spin. At least 165 degrees Fahrenheit should be read in the thickest part of the chicken before it is removed from the grill.
  6. Allow the chicken to cool for 5 minutes after baking, then serve hot with additional barbecue sauce on the side.

Grilling BBQ chicken leg quarters: how long?

The amount of time needed to grill chicken legs depends on their size and the temperature of the grill. How long it takes to cook your meat depends on a variety of factors, including whether you're using a charcoal or gas grill.

It usually takes between 40 and 60 minutes. Your chicken leg quarters will turn out best if you cook them over the grill's most direct heat.

Grilled chicken should be done when the thermometer reads 165 degrees Fahrenheit inside. It's best to wait 5 minutes before devouring your chicken. If you don't have a meat thermometer, you can also check to see if the juices run clear when you slice into the chicken to see if it's cooked through.

A common problem when grilling chicken is that the legs tend to stick.

If you want to prevent your chicken legs from sticking to the grill, you can do a few things.

  • Prepare a pristine grilling surface as a starting point. The grate's stickiness increases if there is residue from a previous barbecue.
  • Prepare your grill, but don't turn it on too high. After the grill has reached the desired temperature, adding the meat will generate steam, which will prevent the meat from sticking to the grill.
  • Oiling the chicken before grilling it will keep it from sticking to the grill. Oiling the grill grates is another option. To get the best results, you need only use oil with a high smoke point.

DO YOU Baste Grilled Chicken with Barbecue Sauce First?

If you baste chicken with BBQ sauce before grilling, the sauce will likely burn. More power to you if that's the taste you're going for Several of my friends and family members prefer their barbecue to have a charred appearance. On the other hand, I never put BBQ sauce on until the meat is almost done.

Due to the high sugar content in BBQ sauce, it is likely to burn if left in direct contact with the heat for the duration of grilling. The sauce will reach a beautiful caramelization without burning if you start coating the chicken about 10 to 15 minutes before removing it from the grill. Simply keep turning the chicken so that it can absorb sauce from all sides.
