MOM’S BLACKENED BARBECUE CHICKEN DRUMSTICKS

This is one of those staple recipes that my family makes all of the time. It’s easy, delicious, and doesn’t take lot of prep or hands-on cook time. Enjoy!!

Serves: 7 (2 legs each)
Prep Time: 2 minutes
Cook Time: 6 hours (in crockpot), 10 minutes (on the BBQ)
Total Time: 6 hours 12 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1-2.5 lb. package of Chicken Drumsticks (about 14 legs)
  • 2 jars of your favorite BBQ sauce; mix 2 or more for some extra flavor (my favorites are Bull’s-Eye Original, Sweet Baby Ray’s Original, and Trader Joe’s Bold & Smoky Kansas City Style BBQ sauce)

Directions:

  1. Place chicken and 1 jar of BBQ sauce in the crockpot.
  2. Cook on low setting for 6 hours.
  3. Preheat BBQ, to medium high heat, for 5 minutes.
  4. In the meantime, place the chicken on a foil-covered cookie sheet (the chicken gets really tender and will break apart easily, so be careful when removing it from the crockpot; I use a good pair of tongs).
  5. Carefully place the chicken legs on the BBQ grill.
  6. Baste the chicken with additional BBQ sauce.
  7. BBQ the chicken, with the top closed, for approximately 5 minutes, or until you see a blackened color (my family really loves their chicken about 30-50% black; it gives the legs a ton of smoky flavor!).
  8. Carefully flip the chicken over using tongs and a spatula. While holding the chicken with the tongs, scrape underneath the leg and lift (this will help keep the chicken legs from falling off the bone).
  9. Baste chicken with BBQ sauce.
  10. BBQ chicken for an additional 5 minutes.
  11. Serve and enjoy!!
