BBQ Chicken Leg Quarters

There is something about manning a grill that brings out the most primal needs within a ninja.  Fire, smoke, and the smell of charcoal makes one just realize, yes I am a man and more importantly I am a ninja.  I decided to grill some chicken leg quarters and they turned out to be divine.  I’m always using my grill on the weekends and this weekend I decided to season my chicken with Big Ron’s House Seasoning.  This stuff is amazing.  It tastes absolutely wonderful on anything and everything.  I think if my wife sprinkled some all over her before coming to bed, she might just get a little more ninja foreplay.

To start things off, I like to brine my chicken.  Today’s ninja brine was:

1 Gallon of water
1/2 Cup of Kosher salt
1/2 Cup of sugar
2 Tablespoons of garlic
2 Tablespoons of oregano
1 Tablespoon of black pepper
5 dried chili arbol
1/2 Cup of apple cider vinegar

Mix all of this together in a big enough pot to hold your chicken and bring to almost a boil.  The salt and sugar should be dissolved completely.  Let this cool down and add some ice cubes to make it cold.  Add your chicken and place in the fridge until you are ready to grill.  I would suggest at least an hour but no more than 24 hours in the brine.

The chicken is really happy right now.  It is coated in Big Ron’s rub and the smell is turning on my ninja prowess.

On the grill at 400 degrees for about 30 minutes until done.

Chicken leg quarter pron just for you.  I was so excited to eat this that I didn’t take any photos of the sides or my plate.  Sorry but a ninja has to eat.
