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 do you grill a flounder?

    A:

    Grill flounder whole over medium heat directly on the grill grates. Let the flounder cook uncovered for five minutes before lifting it slightly to keep it from sticking to the grill grates and falling apart. Let the flounder sit for another two to three minutes before turning it over. Continue cooking the fish for up to 10 minutes or until the meat viewed inside the cuts looks clear and opaque.
