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.

Thumbs Up For These Starters

I just recently tried a pack of these and I’m hooked on them now. Easy to light and the pack size is about right for the use you have in a 35 lb bag of lump.

A replacement

The most recent bag was a replacement for one I received damaged. No hassles, no crap. Sent a couple of pictures and a replacement bag was shipped out.
Great product, great service. Must be the reason I only use FOGO

Nothing but the best

Have order several times in the past and will continue to. Also burns clean, hot, and nice size lumps.

Bold Brazilian Flavor

I used this to smoke an untrimmed Tri-tip seasoned only with Kosher salt. The flavor complexity and intensity from the Eucalyptus Charcoal was amazing. Definitely worth trying out.
