About the Recipe

THIS IS THE BEST! There is nothing better than diving into a juicy, sticky, & perfectly grilled House of Meats Chicken Drumstick; rubbed with your favorite rub and basted with bar-b-que sauce with a side of HOM Potato Salad, Cole Slaw, Macaroni Salad, and Corn on the Cob!


  • I like a “ready to go” seasoned rub, it’s easier and HOM has a host of them, just ask

  • Your favorite Bar-B-Que Sauce, again lots at HOM

  • Oil, any natural oil will do

  • Paper Towels


  • Instant Read Meat Thermometer

Step 1:

Start by patting the chicken skin dry, the dryer the crispier.


Step 2:

Season chicken thoroughly. Massage the rub in with your fingers. Place on a tray or rack in the refrigerator and let sit for 30 to 60 minutes for the rub to work and the skin continue to dry.


Step 3:

Pre-heat your grill to 400 degrees.


Step 4:

Remove chicken from refrigerator and drizzle a few teaspoons of oil over the pieces and recoat with your rub.


Step 5:

Place the Chicken Drums on the grill, cook with the lid closed for 4 to 5 minutes, turn, and cook for an additional 4 to 5 minutes.


Step 6:

Reduce heat to 300 degrees and cook for 6 to 8 minutes.


Step 7:

Baste all sides with your favorite Bar-B-Que Sauce, close lid, and continue to cook for an additional 4 to 6 minutes until the sauce has caramelized.


Step 8:

Total cooking time should be about 25 minutes.


Step 9:

Confirm internal temperature. The internal temperature with an instant read thermometer, should read 165 to 175 degrees.


Step 10:

You have achieved perfection!

Serve with HOM Potato Salad, Cole Slaw, Macaroni Salad, and Corn on the Cob.
