Loved this glaze! I used 1/4 of the quantity for a 2lb turkey leg and that was ample and after sprinkling the spices rubbed them in and then spooned the glaze over the top to help prevent it rubbing off. It also added a really nice flavor to some roast potatoes.

I did try this with 1 cut-up fryer-chicken! The glaze is really good, what a nice flavor....I had a little bit of a problem with technique. I sprinkled the chicken with the pepper, salt, chili powder and garlic powder, then placed it on the grill, I let it cook on indirect heat for about 10 minutes before putting on the glaze. I couldn't 'brush' it on the meat without wiping off the previously applied spices, you have to kind of 'dab' the glaze onto the chicken. Also, the amounts called for the glaze would be enough for about 3 chickens and, most likely 2-3 turkey breasts. I'm going to make this again because the flavor of the glaze was terrific, I'll just adjust the technique a bit and halve the recipe for the glaze (if I'm only doing 1-2 chickens)
