I am grilling a dozen or more drumsticks tomorrow evening for dinner. I'm using for the first time one of those drumstick holders I picked up at Home Depot. It holds the drumstick vertically while grilling or smoking.

Anyone got a good idea for grilling drumsticks?

I could smoke the drumsticks too but not sure of the times and temps. Anyone know? Thanks

Toss 'em in a little Montreal steal seasoning. I've never done it with drumsticks, but it's how I like to do my wings, and everyone seems to like them. Just be careful with the temps, 'cause burnt garlic SUCKS!!!

My suggestion would be to rub them up with your favorite rib rub, grill them indirectly at about 375F+ for 20-35 mins, and then slather them with your favorite sweet red sauce for the final 5-10 mins. (I use my own rub and then a sauce like Sweet Baby Rays for the slather)

I like them breaded...





Just make you up some milk and egg wash and a bowl of your favorite breading and you are on the way. Good either grilled or smoked.

Thanks for the ideas CrazyChef, gibber, and Old Dave it is appreciated.


I looked on my shelves for sauces I have yet to use and found a couple.


I have used the Hooters before on wings and love it. I have never used Franks before so looking forwad to that. I have used Head Country rub before but not the sauce. Should be a good mix of chicken legs.

I will likely add a little rub before grilling then add the sauce the last five mins or so. Will grill this evening and show the finished pics.

update: Put the legs on.


Put some poultry rub I have not used I picked up at Costco a while back.




Not sure if the skin will get crispy hanging on the thing-a-ma-jig.

Update II:


Halfway thru the cook. Not sure the hanging thing does anything for the chicken beside being a space saver.


For the last 5-10 mins I finished the legs on the grill to crisp the skin. From left to right it is Hooters sauce, Head Country, and Franks Hot sauce.


Looking good!


Finished.


With tater salad.

I loved the Frank's Hot sauce...loved it. I liked the other two as well but the Franks was very tasty. I think next time I would just grill the legs with out the hanging thing...unless I needed the space.

Looks like everything turned out great jeepdad! I like the Franks wing sauce too, if you like the Franks you should also check out Texas Petes wing sauce.

jeepdad, It looks to me like the hanger would make the legs cook unevenly. Did you find that to be true? Confused

Funny thing....not at all the opposite was true the legs were cooked evenly. The legs were perfectly done just needed to crisp up the skin.

Hmmm, Thanks jeepdad. I'll have to keep my eyes open for one of those racks I guess.

Glad to see I'm not the only one that uses breading on the grill. I just use seasoned flour on wings. Makes a great crust.

I have one of those leg/wing holders. I have never used it but now that I have a gas grill I might give it a try.

Mix that Franks with butter for the original Anchor Bars wing sauce.

jeepdad,

Those look great. I need to get one of those leg racks. I've done some legs on the grill. It's a little more work but I've had great results doing this and it's more work. Skin the legs. Peel all the skin off. This is grillin style. Cook'em till done. Meat should be receding on the small end. Have a bowl full of the tastiest sauce next to grill with a platter beside. Pull done leg from grill and immediately submerse in sauce roll and place on platter. It will stick and they will be messy tastey eating. Laughing

if you prefer the "Buffalo Style" as opposed to the "Hot Wing" style, try some "Famous Dave's Sassy Chipotle". I have had MANY compliments on the wings that I fix with it. Have yet to try it on any legs.........

the wife loves drumsticks so I appease her with doing them everynow and then. Simple is best...just grill them medium heat...rotating often. I usually put a rub on overnite or a merinade overnite.....keep the sugar off or they will burn.

they always turn out good grilled slower than faster.

Yours look great....Franks Red Hot is a dime a dozen up here....son loves it and we mix it with Ranch Dressing and that is our buffalo sauce for wings.
