Sauce:
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)

Optional Marinade (I Skipped):
3T Vinegar (Optional)
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.

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

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.

Extra Virgin Olive Oil (Depending on how cooking)

Use Rub any way you’d like. For this particular recipe, I BAKED Chicken Legs. So, I:
REMOVED SKIN FROM LEGS (Easier to do when Partial Frozen!).
I Marinaded in Ziploc Bag: 6 Legs + 1/2T White Vinegar + 1-2T Chicken Rub (I skipped Brown Sugar for this particular recipe). Marinade 20min.
Add 1/2T Olive Oil to bag, toss around. Sprinkle in half of 1/2T Flour in the bag, toss. Add other half, toss. Set in fridge for about 20 minutes.
