    Big pack of legs on sale and I like to cook them up so I have them for lunches. Normally I cook them
    All the same way, but I decided to do half one way and the other half a different way.

    First batch I made an Asian inspired marinade.

    1 1/2 cups soy
    3/4 cup Brown sugar
    1/2 cup honey
    1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
    4 tablespoon siracha
    1 1/2 teaspoons ginger
    4 cloves of garlic minced
    Ground black pepper

    Mix that all up. Place chicken in ziplock. Dump in the marinade, reserve a 1/4 cup marinade for glazing.

    Second batch was oven fried. I saved out two drummies and did those smoker fried. Should've done them all that way, but I wanted some grease! Which I used schmaltz. Nothing like frying chicken in chicken fat!

    Thank you! I subbed brown rice with my leftovers! Was thinking some potato Mac sounded good.

    We have two mix plate restaurants here in Central Oregon. In my opinion neither of them have good potato mac. Sueoka's Market n Koloa Kauai has a Snack Shack that serves a good plate and three and the pot-mac is pretty tasty.

    Thanks Willie! Yeah we go through a bottle pretty fast as both my wife and I like it! For lunch yesterday I went to my Favorite Pho shop here. I put a tad much Siracha in my Pho Tia Chin. I was sweating by the end! The jalapenos I put in there may have contributed to the heat factor too!
