Baked bbq Chicken Legs
  • 24 chicken legs, thoroughly washed
  • Maple Smokehouse dry Smoking Seasoning, your brand
  • kosher salt
  • fresh ground pepper
  • 1 recipe for homemade BBQ Sauce, or your brand
Directions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. To make cleanup a bit easier, you may opt to line 2-3 baking sheets with nonstick foil. Trust me these can be a mess as well as a delicious menu item. No sense in spending your night scouring pans.
  3. Be sure to thoroughly wash chicken legs under cold water as we have no idea where these tasty legs have been before they got to our house. Pat dry with a clean towel.
  4. Place chicken legs on a baking sheet that has been covered in foil. Give them a little breathing space they might start feeling claustrophobic if too close.
  5. Season the chicken legs with Maple Smokehouse Smoking seasoning (your brand) kosher salt and fresh ground pepper.
  6. Place in the preheated 400-degree oven.
  7. Bake for 35 minutes, brush with homemade BBQ sauce (or your brand of BBQ sauce.)
  8. Turn chicken legs and brush the other side with Homemade BBQ Sauce (or your brand.)
  9. Bake on 400 another 10-12 minutes, or till completely done.
  10. Remove from oven and place in the heatproof area. Feel free to slap more BBQ Sauce on and join the “10 napkins deep club” along with me.
  11. Be sure to serve immediately with your families favorite sides and tons of napkins!
