Pellet Grill Smoked Chicken Legs
Smoked Chicken Legs are in my opinion one of the most underrated tailgate foods out there! They are quick, cheap and meatier than chicken wings.
Remove chicken legs from the packaging and pat dry with a paper towel. Season the legs on all sides and then place on a half sheet pan with a drying rack. Let them sit uncover overnight or at least for a few hours.
Preheat the pellet grill to 300 degrees F.
Pat the chicken dry and then toss with avocado oil, season the chicken a second time lightly and place on the pellet grill close to the heat source.
Cook the chicken for about 90 minutes spraying every 30 minutes with cooking spray
Once you reach an internal temp between 185-190 degrees you can brush them with a sauce or serve them dry.
