Q:

How long do you grill chicken legs?

A:

Quick Answer

Chicken legs should be grilled at medium and high heat over a split fire. The high heat causes some of the fat to melt off the meat, resulting in a slightly charred skin. The medium heat cooks the chicken thoroughly without burning.

Full Answer

Chicken legs can be seasoned with a spice rub before grilling. Flavors such as fennel and herbes de provence pair well with chicken. To prepare chicken legs for the grill, use a food processor to pulse the fennel, herbes de provence, and salt and pepper in a food processor. Rub the spice mix all over the chicken legs, on the inside and outside of the skin. Oil the grill grate before placing the meat on the grill. Cook the chicken legs on high heat for five minutes, turning the meat often. Then, cook the chicken on medium heat for five minutes, turning the meat occasionally to ensure even cooking.

    How many minutes per pound should beef tenderloin be cooked?

    A:

    The exact cooking time for beef tenderloin depends not only on size but also on the temperature of the oven and the desired level of doneness for the meat; for example, at 425 degrees Fahrenheit, a 2-pound beef tenderloin can be cooked for 35 to 40 minutes for medium rare or 45 to 50 minutes for medium. At this same temperature, larger pieces of meat require longer cooking times, and smaller pieces require shorter cooking times. The meat can also be tested for doneness by inserting a meat thermometer into the meat and determining internal temperature; 135 F is a rough minimum internal temperature for a medium-rare beef tenderloin.
