    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.
