Cooking for 6 people


Peach Molasses Glaze

  • 1 cup peach preserves
  • 1 tbsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp. soy sauce
  • 4 tsp. molasses

Dry Rub

  • 1.25 tsp. paprika
  • 2 tsp. garlic salt
  • 4 tsp. black pepper

1 Food Prep

In a small bowl, add the dry rub ingredients and mix well.

Brush each chicken drumstick with a light coat of yellow mustard, then season each drumstick with the dry rub mix (about 1 tsp. per drumstick).

2 Grill Prep

Method: Two-Zone Method

Temp: 300°F (Medium Heat)

3 The Cook

  • When you’re at temp, put cooking oil on a folded paper towel. Grab the oiled paper towel with long-handled tongs and oil the grate thoroughly.

  • Place your chicken drumsticks on the grate away from the coals. Close the grill lid and cook your chicken for 40 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 175–180°F.

  • While your chicken is cooking, combine your peach molasses glaze ingredients in a blender or food processor. Blend your glaze until it’s smooth and pour it into a shallow bowl.

  • When your chicken’s ready, remove it from the grill and submerge each drumstick into the glaze to coat. Then place your drumsticks back on the grate, away from the coals, to cook for 8 minutes or until the sauce caramelizes.

  • Once ready, remove your drumsticks from the grill and enjoy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sweet and Sticky Very good recipe, slightly a little too sweet and messy for me to eat, but great flavor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and Scrumptious The recipe is so easy and so good it just begs to be tried. After the first time I served these up at home my wife made me promise to fix them again in a week. They are just that good.
