Today on the stay at home chef. I'm showing you how to make hickory smoked barbecue chicken drumsticks.

Making Sauces

In the blender, first we'll put in 1 cup of ketchup then we'll add in 2 tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce. Next it's time for our liquid smoke you can buy it liquid smoke and almost any grocery store and it's usually found next to the barbecue sauces. There's usually a couple different flavors and for this recipe.

You want to make sure you buy hickory smoked so we'll just pour that on in. Then we'll add in 1/2 a teaspoon of soy sauce and a big old tablespoon of hot sauce. Then 1/4 cup of brown sugar 2 teaspoons of cornstarch and then it's time for our flavorings.

I have half a teaspoon each of salt onion powder oregano basil and paprika 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper. 1/8 of a teaspoon or a generous pinch of cayenne pepper sprinkle those on in. Last of all toss in three garlic cloves put the lid on here. Blend this together just make sure that that sauce blending well and smooth normally barbecue sauces are cooked. I have a super-secret chip up my sleeve.


We're gonna brush this directly onto the chicken drumsticks and let the sauce cook on the grill with the chicken. Now if you weren't gonna use the sauce right away I recommend simmering out this on the stove for about 15 minutes but not today.


We're gonna start brushing this directly on our drumsticks. Just brush it right on your drumsticks this sauce is really enough for 12 drumsticks. Make sure you cover it all and we'll flip it over and get the other side as well. You could put these on a baking sheet and bake them in a 375-degree oven for about 45 minutes, but today we're gonna grill.

I love the extra flavor that the grill brings to food so I've got a grill preheating to about 400 degrees. We're gonna take these suckers on out now make sure you're putting your drumsticks onto a well-oiled grate so that they don't stick. Get some breathing room let them get that initial sear before we brush on more barbecue sauce. Take a look at these you have that nice black mark.


So let's flip them over start brushing on some more sauce brush on more sauce every time you flip them. Make sure you close the lid when you're not directly working with the chicken. After that initial sear on both sides flip them again brush them with more sauce and then reduce the heat a little bit. Be careful about cross-contamination with the barbecue sauce if you touch the chicken with a brush. Then dip it back in the bowl, that bowl is now contaminated so this fast can't be eaten unless it's cooked.

It might be a good idea to work in small batches and pour some of the sauce into a bowl. Use that to brush onto your smoked chicken drumsticks. It needs to be cooked to an internal temperature of 165 degrees. So the best way to check and see if they're done is to take their temperature once they've reached 165 degrees they're ready for eating.

Now those are finger-licking good smoked chicken drumsticks. Thanks for watching you can find the full written recipe in the video description be sure to subscribe.
