I bought chicken legs when they were on sale - now what to do with them? I saw this recipe and thought I would try it.  The method is good, but I wouldn't cook legs much longer than 6 hours as they were very fall off the bone after 6 hours. What I object to is the doctoring up of the barbecue sauce - if you have a perfectly fine barbecue sauce, why would you doctor it with peach preserves? How do you even know peach preserves would go along with what you started with? In my case, I pay extra money to buy barbecue sauces that do not have High Fructose Corn Syrup in them - and most of the major brands I've seen have HFCS as either the 1st or second ingredient. I was in a hurry and just picked up cheap peach preserves and didn't notice until I went to use them that they had HFCS as the second ingredient. I know, my fault. But that's still to say that I had HFCS in my barbecue sauce.As I said, the method was good, it's just that if and when I make these again. I won't doctor up the barbecue sauce unless I think it needs doctoring.Now, anyone got a use for peach preserves?
