4 ingredients

  1. 2 lb chicken legs
  2. 1 tsp salt
  3. 1/2 cups barbecue sauce
  4. 1 tsp liquid smoke

Instructions

  1. Marinate the chicken: Set the chicken legs in a shallow dish and sprinkle both sides with salt. If you're using liquid smoke, mix it into the barbecue sauce.
  2. Brush the legs all over with 1/4 cup of the barbecue sauce, reserving the rest.
  3. Cover, and set in fridge to marinate at least 30 minutes or as long as overnight.
  4. Prepare the chicken for cooking: Set the broiler to high with a rack positioned a few inches below. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and set a metal cooling rack (like the ones used for baking) inside (or use a broiler pan).
  5. Arrange the marinated chicken legs on the wire rack with a little space between each leg.
  6. Sear the chicken: Slide the pan under broiler, and broil chicken on one side until you begin to see dark brown charred spots, 5 to 7 minutes. Flip, and sear the second side until also browned, another 3 to 5 minutes or so.
  7. Turn the oven to 350F and reposition the rack in the middle of the oven.
