The time has come to clean your grills and smokers, and cook! Here in Florida it’s been well into the eighties, and we have already been outside cooking for awhile, but for those of you in the great white north, it’s time to go outside!

I don’t know about where your at, but the cheapest thing for us to buy right now down here is chicken leg quarters at $0.79 per pound, so go get some leg quarters and try this recipe;

Grilled Tangerine Chicken w/Tangerine Salsa

Ingredients:

* 4 Chicken Leg Quarters
* Extra Virgin Olive Oil
* 3 to 4 Tangerines (diced for salsa)
* Green onions (diced for salsa)
* Cilantro (diced for salsa)
* 2 to 3 mediums Tomatoes (diced for salsa)
* Dried cranberries (for Salsa)
* 1/4 cup Honey (For Salsa)
* HomeBBQ.com Tangerine Pepper Seasoning
* dash Chile powder  (for Salsa)
* 1 Tblsp – Tangerine Zest

Directions:
Preparation: Salsa; Mix green onions, cilantro, diced tomatoes, dried cranberries, and tangerines Add 2 Tablespoons Honey, and a dash of Chile Pepper Mix well, and let rest. Using EVOO Rub Leg Quarters well, and season with Tangerine Pepper Seasoning. Let marinate for at least 1 hour, and no longer than 4 hours. Lightly re-season leg quarters before placing them on the grill. Cook indirect, on a 350 to 400 degree grill. Should take 50 mins to 1 hour at 400 degrees. Check temp using instant read thermometer, and insert into the joint connecting the leg and thigh. This should read a minimum of 175 degrees. Remove chicken from grill and let rest for approximately 5 minutes, sprinkle zest over chicken and serve, with salsa on the side.
