The Best Way to Make Drumsticks

chicken drumsticks

Last Friday, our family was invited to a picnic table party.  Everyone brings a dish to share. Lots of bodies and hungry mouths to feed. I was up for the challenge. Lots of mouths means I'm going to need lots of space to cook.  First thought was how many chicken drumsticks can I fit on the Baking Steel Griddle?  I stopped at Whole Foods and bought 21 chicken legs for a grand total of $18.27.  That is a deal.

One thing I'm really loving about the Griddle is the balanced heat and the spacial cooking surface.  With this much space, I can literally load on almost 20 drumsticks per batch.  This thing is a beast.  My favorite way to eat chicken is to add salt, pepper, a little olive oil and heat. Cooked perfectly, after one of these drumsticks you will want another and then another.  I couldn't stop eating them!  Luckily I don't live too far from the market and the size of the Griddle allowed me to whip up another batch in no time!
