"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Ingredients:  
8 tbsp. olive oil
2 tbsp. minced parsley
2 tbsp. minced fresh oregano leaves
2 tbsp. lemon juice
2 tbsp. dry white wine
2 tsp. minced garlic
6 chicken legs (about 1 3/4 lbs.)
2 pounds mussels
Coarse salt
Nonstick cooking spray
Freshly ground pepper18 medium shrimp, shelled (about 1/2 lbs)

Directions:
Directions:
Combine the oil, parsley, oregano, lemon juice, wine and garlic in a bowl.

Place the chicken legs in a plastic food bag; add 1/3 cup of the oil mixture. Marinate in the refrigerator at least 4 hours or overnight. Let come to room temperature before grilling.

Soak the clams and mussels in cold water to cover with 2 teaspoons salt for 30 minutes to purge any sand inside shells. Rinse in cold water, keep chilled until cooking time.

Spray a barbecue grate (and grilling plate or basket if needed to keep small items from falling through grate) with cooking spray. Heat the grill to medium.

Remove the chicken from marinade (discard marinade), sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste and grill until cooked as desired; the juices should run clear when the chicken is pricked with a fork, about 35 to 40 minutes. Grill the shrimp, clams and mussels in separate batches as they have different (but quick) timing. Grill shrimp, turning once, until just opaque, about 1 to 2 minutes total. Grill clams until most shells open, about 4 to 5 minutes (discard any that do not open) grill the mussels until the shells open, about 3 minutes (discard any that do not open).
