Apple Smoked BBQ Drumsticks

Apple Smoked BBQ Drumsticks

You can use this recipe for any amount of chicken drumsticks. Could be 2, could be 20!
Serves: It depends
Total time: 3 hours




  1. Preheat a smoker to 275° F.
  2. Add some BBQ sauce to a mixing bowl and toss the chicken to coat evenly. Reserve some sauce for brushing on the chicken throughout the cook.
  3. Place the drumsticks in the smoker and cook for 2-2 1/2 hours, brushing with more sauce about every 30 minutes. Internal temp should be around 190° for very tender results.
  4. A quick sear in a pan or on a grill, will add a nice crisp depth of color after smoking is complete.
  5. Allow the chicken to rest for 5-10 minutes before eating.
