This is my official entry for the "on a budget" throwdown.

I've been working on a chicken leg recipe for awhile and today's cook, might be the final combination I was looking for. I used Meat Church Honey Hog BBQ and Countryside BBQ sauce. Legs cooked on my Yoder YS640 with Lumberjack cherry pellets. Cook at 285 on wire hangers for 2 hours, sauce and continue for another hour.

For the throwdown, I decided on adding some Grimes sweet corn, red raspberries and Bud Light to round out the entry.

First time cooking corn on the grill. I was brought up on boiled corn and really like it. This method wasn't too bad. Ear wrapped in foil with butter, salt and pepper on medium heat for about 25 minutes.

Cost breakdown:

Twelve Chicken legs at $1.49/lb and I forgot to look at the total weight before I threw the package away. Sweet corn was 7 ears for $5 at the stand, raspberries were $2.49 at Aldi and the beer was $2.50 at Fareway.

Further breakdown,

chicken legs = $3.00 (conservative)
bbq rub = (2 legs * $5.00/12) for half a bottle = $0.83
bbq sauce =(2 legs * $3.99/12) = $0.67
sweet corn = $0.71 for one ear
butter = ($3.99/32 Tbsp) = $0.12 for 1 tablespoon
raspberries = ($2.49 * 0.75) = $1.87 for 3/4 of package
beer = $2.50 on sale!!!
consumables (propane, foil, pellets, etc)....say $5

grand total = $14.70

Please use the last photo as my entry.
