Notes

  • You want to cook chicken drumsticks until they are 180-190 degrees F. I know this seems really hot and chicken is usually done before that, but cooking them to a higher heat point makes it so the chicken isn't stringy like sometimes happens and it's not bloody by the bone. Trust me just do it!
  • Keep the grill temperature to about 350 degrees F. This temp allows the chicken to be perfectly cooked, but the skin won't become scorched.
  • Keep the lid to the grill closed as much as possible .
  • Flip the chicken legs every ten minutes.
  • Have some water ready in case there are flare ups. Chicken drumsticks have a lot of skin which renders when grilling and can drip grease causing flare ups.
  • Grill over direct heat.
