Seasoned and Sausage-Stuffed Chicken Legs
SATURDAY 10.21.2017

Your Tailgate-Ready Show Stopper! 

For your football parties this weekend, look no further than perfectly seasoned and stuffed chicken. With a little preparation and your FOGO Charcoal in tow, it’s extremely quick and easy to blow your friend’s taste buds away. Whether you’re at the stadium, or in your own home, these deliciously smoked Sausage Stuffed Chicken Legs are the perfect companion for game day.


  • Fogo Charcoal
  • 5 links of Johnsonville sausages
  • Fresh Chicken Leg Quarters
  • 3 TBS Head Country Original seasoning
  • 6 ounces Head Country Original BBQ sauce


Set up your grill for 2 zone grilling. I like using the Vortex on the Big Green Egg, as it contains the FOGO Lump Charcoal while maximizing the indirect space around the outside perimeter of the grate. It will take about 20 minutes to get the coals lit and ready for grilling.

While the grill is preheating, remove chicken from the package and pat dry. Using your finger, create a pocket under the skin of the thigh and drum. For each leg quarter, push one-half piece of Johnsonville sausage into the pocket. Using your hands on the outside of the skin, push the sausage to fill the pocket in an even layer.

Liberally season each piece of chicken with the Head Country seasoning.

Place chicken on the grill, skin side down on the indirect area. Close the lid. After 8 minutes, flip the chicken, leaving it cooking indirectly. Continue cooking until the temperature in the thickest part of the thigh reaches 155°F. Apply the sauce, about 1 TBS per piece. Allow continuing cooking until the internal temperature is 160°F and the sauce is set.

The best charcoal on the Market

FOGO has been by far the best charcoal we've ever tried. I've been a customer for years now. It's the only constantly top quality charcoal with amazing taste and very little sparks.

Amazing Mug with rad branding.

Keeps my coffee hot and pop cold. The FOGO logo has to be responsible for this extra hot coffee phenomenon when I fill this Yeti up. Great mug, highly recommend.


Outstanding product. In the past I would use 2 fire starters to get the fire going good. However, with the Blazaball I only use 1 fire starter and the fire is ready in no time. So I’m saving money on fire starters. Simply a brilliant product idea. I have two Eggs (small and large) so I had to order a second Blazaball. Why share? 😬

The right smoke

Ax Breaker - in case you’re curious Quebracho translates to Ax Breaker. I’m glad someone broke a few axes on these trees - the charcoal is by far the best I’ve ever used.
You know that acrid smoke that you get from a lot of charcoals? The white smoke that, until you get the temp just right, won’t go away. And if you put the meat on, turn your back for two seconds and then look back - it’s all white again because the temp got too high too fast… This charcoal holds temps really well, so I’ve avoided that acrid smoke on every cook.
5 stars - would buy again. Worth the price.
