In a bowl add:

  • 1 Tbsp Salt
  • 1 Tbsp Black Pepper
  • 1/2 Tbsp Paprika
  • 1/2 Tbsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 Tbsp Onion Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Cayenne Pepper
  • 1/2 Tbsp Brown Sugar

Mix together.

Step 2: Now to Prep the Drumsticks.

Using either a sharp knife or a pair of scissors, cut through the tendons.

Make sure you’ve cut right around.

Push down the meat down to towards the top of the drumstick.

Step 3: Then Remove the Top by Bending It Backwards.

It will take a bit of force.

You could dig out the other bone but personally I think it will destroy to look of your lollipop.

Plus, most people realise there’s a bone there.

Repeat with the rest of the drumsticks.

Step 4: Next Roll the Drumsticks Through the Rub.

I like use a small bowl like this because it will help you get a even coating of the rub.

These are ready to hit the BBQ.

Step 5: ​Setup Your Charcoal for Indirect Grilling

For extra flavour I’m adding some cherry wood.

Step 6: Place the Drumsticks Opposite the Charcoal.

Make sure they are standing on their ends.

We’re going to cook these at a high temp of around 350f or 180c.

Cover with the lid and cook for 30 minutes.

Step 7: Dip the Drumstick Into Your Choice of BBQ Sauce.

Cover with the lid and cook for 15 more minutes.
