Honey Mustard Chicken Drummies

We got a call this week from friends excited to be taking their two adorable kids to the New Year’s parade. Of course, tailgating was a must and they wanted an easy and kid friendly recipe. Here’s what Patti did, Honey Mustard Chicken Drummies.

They asked what the best sides would be and Ken said napkins…lots and lots of napkins. Patti came up with a barbecue sauce recipe with the help of Country Bob’s BBQ sauce. It was all good!

Pellets: Pacific Pellet Gourmet BBQ pellets Northwest Apple

Ingredients: Honey Mustard Chicken Drums

Directions: Honey Mustard Chicken Drums

Generously sprinkle chicken with Swimmin’ in Smoke Salt Free Chik Bait

In medium bowl whisk BBQ sauce ingredients until well blended set aside until you’re ready to sauce. Brush on sauce 10-15 minutes before chicken is done. I put my drummies on a Bull Rack shelf with the wire rack on it. I find the Bull Rack shelves are handy for lots of things around the grill and kitchen. I just set it on the Louisiana for 45 minutes at 350 Degrees (177c) turning them once. Then, we sauced them the last 10 minutes of the cook.

When the chicken reaches an internal temp around 180 degrees (82c) pull it off, cover it and let it rest for 10 minutes before serving. U.S.D.A. safe for chicken is 165 degrees (74c), but I like the way it flakes apart better at 180 degrees (82c). 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 Louisiana Grill is just like your oven except it uses wood pellets and has wheels.

I do 45 minutes here at 350 degrees (177c).

Note: The Pacific Living Pizza Oven also has a smoke box.

About our Recipes

We do our recipes on our patio where we have a lineup of grills, including Louisiana, Green Mountain, Royall, Memphis, Traeger wood pellet grills, Char Griller side box smoker, Saber, Charmglow, Char-Broil, The Big Easy, Pacific Living Outdoor 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….
