Smoked Chicken Drumsticks
When it comes to making barbecue chicken the drumstick is a great option being a self contained meat delight.
This recipe is slightly complicated with two phases of cooking, but makes it good option when cooking for other people as the meat is effectively already cooked after the first smoking stage, meaning the second phase is just about adding an extra layer of flavor.
Eaters quickly become a fan of the flavor with the soft moist smoked based, and sweet glaze on the outside.

favorite chicken rub
1 stick butter
1 cup BBQ sauce
1/2 cup apple sauce

Set the smoker to 220 degrees F (105 degrees C) using a sweet fruit food such as apple.
