Golden Pile of Drummies, wood pellet, grill, BBQ, smoker, recipe

Golden Pile of Drummies

Our Golden Pile of Drummies was made with a drumstick/chicken wing hanger. Using a hanger you don’t have to turn the chicken, you get even cooking all around. We both love kitchen gadgets and this will be fun to use on chicken wings next time. They had a little sweet honey taste from our Butcher BBQ Honey rub and were perfectly seasoned with our Butcher BBQ Bird Booster Injection/Marinade made with apple juice instead of water. This would make a great tailgating recipe, but make sure you make plenty because they go really fast.

Note: I know the chicken is upside down in this rack. The slots in this rack look like they were made for turkeys. Way too big!!! . We were really unhappy with this rack sold by JMilesCo on Amazon.

Our Ingredients

Cooking Directions: Golden Pile of Drummies

In a marinator or large freezer bag well blend marinade ingredients. Marinate the chicken for a few hours or even overnight. Remove chicken from marinade and generously season chicken with Butcher BBQ Honey Rub. And hang the legs in a rack if you are using one. If not you can add them directly onto the grill and roll them a few times during the cook.

Preheat the grill to 350 degrees (177c) and place your chick on the grill for an hour. When the chicken reaches an internal temperature 170 degrees (77c) pull it off, cover it and let it rest for 5 to 10 minutes before serving. I like chicken better when done at 170 degrees or so because the meat flakes apart nicely. U.S.D.A. safe is 165 degrees (74c). Keep in mind that the chicken will continue cooking for another 5 to 10 degrees after you pull it off the grill. I use a Maverick ProTemp Instant Read Thermometer for checking meat temps.

Note: I get a lot of questions about the kind of pellets you can use with a recipe. Keep in mind that a recipe is just an outline. Some you need to follow closely like when you are making bread, but most you can do anything you can dream, our favorite way to cook. Feel free to mix and match the pellets until you find a combination you really like. Also you are only smoking at temps less than 250 degrees (122c), anything higher is cooking and there will not be much if any smoke so it does not matter what kind of pellet you are using.

Cooking In the Oven:

We have been getting requests for recipe conversions for the Pacific Living Outdoor Oven. I tell folks all the time that cooking on a Wood Pellet Grill/Smoker is just as easy as cooking in your oven. Just about anyone can do it and do it well. Think about it. You set your control knob to the temp you want, put your meat in and leave it for a set time. It is the same thing, time and temperature is what it is all about. The Grill is just like your oven except it uses wood pellets and has wheels.

Do an hour at 350 degrees (177c).
Note: The Pacific Living Outdoor Oven also has a smoke box.

About our Recipes

We do our recipes on our patio where we have a lineup of grills, including Green Mountain, Sawtooth, Louisiana, Memphis, Royall, Traeger pellet grills, Char-Griller, Saber, Charmglow, Char-Broil, The Big Easy, Pacific Living Pizza Oven, Lodge Sportsman’s, Brinkman and Weber. I call it our “Wall of Grill”. Our grilling styles are healthy and low fat and will fit pelletheads, gas, natural wood and even charcoal purists. Almost any of our recipes can be done on any kind of good BBQ.

The important thing to keep in mind is TIME & TEMPERATURE. You can even do some of them in the oven or crock pot, but, then you lose all the flavors you get from cooking outdoors. But sometimes it does rain.

Remember that a recipe is simply an outline; it is not written in stone. Don’t be afraid to make changes to suit your taste. Take it and run with it….
