Chicken is a staple in my house, but most times its breast meat. Looking to break the rut, I opted for some chicken legs last time I was out shopping. Boy what a treat! The skin crisped up nice with the rub and then I slathered them with a tangy rum based barbecue sauce, grilling them until they caramelized a little. Served with a salad and some crispy potatoes, you have a great little meal happening there.
Used the new TravelQ™ Larry again for these legs. It was very cold and windy, but I was able to set up in a sheltered area and got the grill up to medium-high in about 5 minutes. The honey and sugar in the sauce caramelized quickly, so you want to do many coats of sauce while you’re grilling them and flip often, although I know that’s not generally the way of the gourmet griller. But the legs are already half cooked after 5 minutes, so you’re good to go. This sauce goes very well over wings and on pork as well. But when you tuck in, make sure that you have lots of napkins and wet-naps handy. Leave a comment and tell us about your favourite messy food. One that needs wet-naps after eating!

With winter still battering us in the northern areas of North America, a good stew is just about the best thing you can eat. It warms you from the inside. It’s lighter than a beef stew too.View Details
