Chicken Legs

Today I did up some chicken legs I had sitting in the freezer. I rubbed with Sweet Money BBQ Rub from  I fired up a full chimney of KBB. It took it 30 mins to completely ash over. I then tossed it in my Weber kettle inside the vortex with a chance of pecan for smoke. 30 mins later I flipped the legs. At about 45 mins the largest of the legs temp was 170 so now time for the glaze. I had some Stubbs Honey Pecan that I thinned with just a bit of Apple Juice. The side was some mashed cauliflower with cheese.  On to the pics.
