What's this?

Our Maple Bourbon "Drunk"sticks are wildly flavorful. They're drowned in Bourbon, OJ, and syrup sauce for a warm kick in the taste buds.

Ingredients

  • 24 Whole chicken drumsticks

  • 2 Tablespoon onion powder

  • 2 Tablespoon garlic powder

  • 1 Tablespoon ground coriander

  • 2 Tablespoon salt

  • 2 Teaspoon black pepper

  • 6 Ounce Orange Juice Concentrate

  • 8 Fluid Ounce bourbon

  • 8 Fluid Ounce maple syrup

  • 1/2 Teaspoon salt

  • 1/8 Cup sugar

Steps

  • 1

    When ready to cook, start the Traeger on smoke and set the temperature to 180F and preheat, lid closed, for 10-15 minutes.
  • 2

    While the grill is preheating, generously coat the drumsticks with onion powder, garlic powder, ground coriander, salt, and black pepper.
  • 3

    Place the coated drumsticks on the grill and let them smoke for 1 hour. While the chicken is smoking, prepare the glaze by combining the orange juice concentrate, bourbon, maple syrup, sugar, and salt. Combine these ingredients and let it reduce by 1/3.
  • 4

    After the chicken has smoked for 1 hour, turn the grill up to 325F and roast the drumsticks for 30 more minutes, until the chicken has reached an internal temp of 160.

    Remove drumsticks and turn grill to high. Toss the drumsticks in the glaze and place them back on the grill for 10 to 12 more minutes or until you get some good grill marks. Serve.
