Sometimes the simple classics are tough to beat. Sometimes the only thing I want to throw on the grill is a pile of chicken drumsticks. Drumsticks look beautiful, are fun to eat and taste delicious. It doesn’t hurt that they are also budget friendly.
- 1 quart water
- 1/3 cup salt
- 2/3 cup sugar
The chicken gets brined for a minimum of four hours. These drumsticks brined for 12 hours and were exploding with juices after grilling.
The chicken got dusted with a little dry rub then grilled over direct medium heat with GrillGrate panels.
Nothing fancy. Just plain and simple grilling.
It helped turn a crappy day at work into a great evening at home. Yep, it made me happy.
