One of the things that makes this BBQ chicken recipe the arrogant title is the fact I encourage you to use your favorite bbq sauce as well as your favorite beer. The only necessity is that you use chicken leg quarters featuring the fatty dark meat of the bird.

The spicy tangy sauce is best enjoyed with an incredible Golden IPA. My choice being that I enjoy great locally raised chickens would have to be the local Richmond VA brewery Legend Brewery IPA.

-5 lbs of chicken leg quarters
-A bottle of your favorite bbq sauce
-1 bottle of beer
-1/4 cup of cider vinegar
-2 tablespoons of Franks Hot Sauce

1.  Begin by  seasoning your chicken legs with salt and pepper. I like to cook them on a grill pumping low heat. This is a guarantee for meltingly tender, juicy chicken. Start them skin side down

2. While the chicken is rocking on a low heat. Mix up a half bottle of your bbq sauce along with the remainder of the ingredients. This will become your incredible chicken glaze that creates the best bbq chicken.

3. Grill the chicken for 10 minutes on the skin side until you get nice color and the chicken skin begins to crisp. flip and cook for another 20 minutes until the chicken is cooked or a meat thermometer inserted near the bone reads 165 degrees.

4. Baste with the delicious glaze and and cook for another 3 minutes. Let the tangy spicy sauce get inside the meat. Do not be afraid to dip your chicken in the remaining glaze.
