    It was very good! Ended up using my own seasoning mix in addition to the barbecue sauce but it was very tasty! Easy and tasty, my favorite recipes!

    if you want crispy skin, cook the legs for a while longer... I also added some dry rub underneath beforw basting with the sauce

    I baked for 43 minutes and then broiled on HI for close to 3 minutes. Chicken was moist. I think I’ll use a bit more seasoning next time. Overall, not bad.

    I think 10 minute range of bake time is not good. I baked for 20 mins then had to keep broiling because the chicken wasn’t reaching cooked temperature. Outside overcooked, inside undercooked. Next time I will bake for at least 25 minutes before broiling.
