Cooking tip

For Chicken Drumsticks: Prepare marinade as directed using 2 pounds chicken drumsticks. Prepare grill for indirect medium-low heat (275°F to 300°F). Preheat grill by turning all burners to medium. Turn off burner(s) on one side of grill. Remove drumsticks from marinade and place on unlit side of grill. Discard any remaining marinade. Close grill. Grill 30 to 40 minutes or to an internal temperature of 165°F, turning occasionally. Move drumsticks to lit side of grill. Turn lit side of grill to high. Grill, uncovered, 3 to 5 minutes longer or until drumsticks are nicely charred.
