  • 2 pounds chicken drumsticks
  • 1 tablespoon garlic salt
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1/2 tablespoon salt
  • 1/2 tablespoon black pepper
  • BBQ sauce of choice - to baste


  • Heat grill for two-zone grilling method, with the direct heat on medium-high (approximately 375-400F). While grill preheats, season drumsticks with garlic salt, paprika, salt and pepper. Toss in a bowl to combine and set aside.
  • Grill on direct heat for 30-35 minutes, flipping every 6 minutes, or so. Grill until the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 165 degrees F.
  • Using tongs, move chicken drumsticks to the indirect side of the grill, and baste with your favorite bbq sauce. Grill for an additional 5-10 minutes on indirect heat until the sauce begins to caramelize (will look slightly charred/crispy) and the internal temperature reaches approx 175 degrees F.
  • Remove from heat and serve immediately.


2lbs equals approximately 8 chicken drums. Nutrition info is for 1 chicken drum without bbq sauce as bbq sauce preference may differ from above recipe.
