What is the fastest way to cook chicken legs on a gas grill?
Score two lines on each, allowing some of the juices to escape. One score line on each side. Two lines per side if the legs are big.
If you're going to score the chicken or cook it fast at high temperatures I suggest you marinate it in buttermilk overnight before cooking to help keep the meat moist and juicy.
The night before, get some water to boiling and drop the chicken legs in for 10 minutes. Pull and allow the chicken to cool down and refrigerate. They are now ready for grilling. Once the grill is fired up, place on grill to brown and brush on sauce. The chicken stays moist and you don't have to toss the water, save it for chicken stock if you choose, just allow it to simmer to reduce the liquid. This is a two for one.
