1/3c CHIPOTLE Honey BBQ Sauce (Sweet Baby Rays)
1.5tsp Lime Juice (100% fridge kind)
1/2T Brown Sugar
1/4-1/2tsp Chipotle Powder (I did 1/4tsp)

1T McCormick’s BBQ Seasoning (Optional)

Optional Step (I SKIPPED). Marinade Chicken Legs: Add skinned Legs to Ziploc Bag. Add in Vinegar, shake around. Add in half BBQ Seasoning, shake. Add in other half, shake. Marinade ONE HOUR! That’s it.

Premix BBQ Sauce (Depending on how many legs you are cooking, you may need to double the batch, or so.) Set aside. GRILL Legs (Best on Charcoal Grill, if you know how to do it correctly! Grill Tip Below.). Near end, Brush BBQ Sauce on Legs, flip. Allow to cook a minute or two. Brushing BBQ on other side. Then, flip. Cook a minute or two, allowing to caramelize.

crispysweetpotatofries

Sweet Potato, cut to fry size
Cold Water

Crisco Oil/ Deep Fryer

Seasoning: 
1 Beef Broth Cube, CRUSHED
1tsp Cajun Seasoning
1tsp Chili Powder
1/2tsp Mustard Powder
1/2tsp Pepper
1/2tsp Paprika
1/2tsp Garlic Powder
1/2tsp Onion Powder
1/4tsp Dried Dill Weed
1/8tsp Cayenne Powder
1/8tsp Sea Salt

Cut Sweet Potato to desired Fry Size. Place in bowl of Cold Water, place in fridge for about 20minutes. Prep Seasoning in a bowl. Gently and Quickly, Pat dry. At about 350-400, deep fry for about 6 minutes, or til LIGHTLY browned. Place onto paper toweled plate. Finish up batches. THEN, go back to first batch and RE-DEEP FRY for another few minutes. Place onto paper toweled plate and season well with Seasoning, I had leftover seasoning, so, DON’T USE ALL.

Charcoal Grilling Tip: If it tastes like straight up smoke… You’re doing it wrong! We build a hill in center of grill. Light charcoal (We used Regular Charcoal). Once coals are ashy grey, they are ready. Prop Grill Open, using a Slightly crushed pop can, ON IT’S SIDE. Chicken: Lay Chicken on outer part of grill (Outside hill). Once Chicken isn’t sticking to grate, so much, it’s ready to flip. Flip once, that’s it (Unless applying Sauce and Thickening the Sauce, that’s more flipping). Cook til Thermometer reads correct temp.

jalapenopopperfilling

Jalapeno Poppers and TECHNIQUE:
Jalapenos, cut off top (Stems). We used a Wine Bottle Cork Screw to scrape along edges of inside to de-seed Jalapenos (Whatever technique works for you: Small Knife, Corer, etc.)
Wrap Turkey Bacon (Halved length wise) around
Sargento’s Chipotle BBQ Cheddar Snack Bite Cheeses (I used 1 per Jalapeno)

Stuff Cheese Wrapped in Bacon into Jalapenos.
 – Cooking Technique: We used a MINI Aluminum Pan. TURN UPSIDE DOWN! Cut small Xs into it (Fits 6 perfect. I tried more, but, Xs expanded, making ONE BIG HOLE. So, don’t over pack. Also, it fits nicely on grill w/ other foods.).
KEEP PAN UPSIDE DOWN and LIGHTLY press Jalapenos into Xs. Grill. Eat! (Dipping Sauce is Optional-Ranch.)
YOU CAN EVEN Cool in fridge, slice, and Serve on Sandwiches. Burgers. Etc.
