Many moons ago, kmvet posted the concept of making an ordinary chicken leg into a "chicken lollipop"...


French cutting the chicken legs is really easy to do, and not too time consuming. Makes for a great presentation, and I think you can achieve more even cooking with this technique as well. And I've found that the marinade sinks in deeper as well.

Gave these legs a sweet rub, and also marinated them in some Lawry's Hawaiian Marinade and Pineapple Juice.



Grilled them up indirect at around 375 deg f until they were done. We weren't feeling a smoky flavor, so I just used regular ol' lump charcoal with no wood for smoke.

I wrapped the exposed bones a few minutes into the cook to prevent them from burning.



Pretty dang good. :)

Sweeeeet! I am reminded of the old commercial "How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop?-- Three!... One, two,.... THREE, crunch (as in bite). It takes three licks to get to the center..." Splendid looking meal, Dyal! Thanks for sharing the secret of that. :D
Got beer???

Nice job! That method of cooking the drumsticks would work well with a lot of recipes.

That chicken looks stupid good. I haven't seen that variety of Lawry's Marinade, but I'll be keeping an eye out for it.
