In the Kitchen:
Take the drumstick by the bone and pull down the skin. Use a knife to cut through the sinews around  the bone. Chop off the skin and the joint with a pair of scissors or a knife.
Now push up the chicken meat to make the drumsticks look like small lollies. Remove any meat residues from the bone with a cloth.

Mix the spices for the rub thoroughly and roll the chicken lollies in it.

Tiered cooking system + Expansion Rack

At the barbeque:
Prepare the barbecue for indirect heat – approx. 160-180 °C. Place  the  ETC system on the grate and put on the expansion rack in the middle. Place the rubbed chicken lollies in the rack with the meat pointing up.
Close the lid and let them grill for about 15 minutes. Brush the lollies with BBQ sauce and continue to grill under lid for 15 minutes. Repeat this step twice. The lollies are done when they have reached  a core temperature of 75-85 °C. They will have  a nice reddish  colour  from the  BBQ sauce.

Tip of the day

White pepper
Use white pepper when making pale, creamy sauces or clear stock because it won't discolour the sauce.
