Step 1:

Start by patting the chicken skin dry, the dryer the crispier.


Step 2:

Season chicken thoroughly. Massage the rub in with your fingers. Place on a tray or rack and let sit for 30 to 60 minutes for the rub to work and for the skin to continue to dry.


Step 3:

Preheat your grill to 400 degrees.


Step 4:

Remove chicken from refrigerator and drizzle a few teaspoons of oil over the pieces and recoat with your rub.


Step 5:

Place the Chicken Leg Quarters on the grill skin side down, cook with the lid closed for 3 to 4 minutes, turn and cook for an additional 3 to 4 minutes.


Step 6:

Reduce heat to 300 degrees and cook skin side up for 10 to 15 minutes.


Step 7:

Baste with your favorite Bar-B-Que Sauce, close lid and cook an additional 3 to 5 minutes. Turn and baste other side, and continue to cook for an additional few minutes until the sauce has caramelized. Total cooking time should be about 30 minutes.
