Our most hedonistic pairing yet.

 

Smoked Chicken Drumsticks with Paso Kink Red Wine


Honey Applewood Smoked Chicken Drumsticks
with Paso Kink Red Wine

We start by marinating chicken drumsticks in a spiced honey glaze and slow smoke the meat over charcoal and green applewood. The result? A seriously hedonistic pairing – smokey, a little spicy and dripping with juicy goodness. #foodporn anyone? 

Ingredients (Makes ~ 16 drumsticks)


• 1/2 Cup Green Onion, thinly sliced
• 2 Tbs Garlic, coursely chopped
• 1 Cup Cilantro, chopped
• 1/2 Jalepeño, deseeded and minced
• Juice from two limes
• 1/2 Cup Honey
• 1 Tbs Creole Spice (we used Tony Cachere's)
• 1 Tbs Ground Peppercorns (we used a mix of black, white, green and pink peppercorns)
• 1 Tbs Salt (course ground/Kosher. If using table salt, reduce to 1 tsp)
• 2 Tbs Olive Oil
• 16 Chicken Drumsticks
• Green Applewood, cut into 6" pieces
• Charcoal & Charcoal Grill

Prepare for grilling by preheating your charcoal about 45 minutes before removing the chicken from the marinade. Once the charcoal is ready for cooking, move coals to one half of the grill (see photo for reference) and place the chicken opposite of the coals. The drumsticks should be touching, but not stacked on top of each other. Pour any remaining marinade over the chicken and cover with the vent holes approximately 1/4 of the way open.
