  • 2 pounds chicken drumsticks
  • 2 teaspoons garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • Teriyaki BBQ Sauce


  • Preheat your grill for two-zone grilling, with the direct heat at 375-400 degrees F.
  • Season drumsticks on all sides with garlic salt and black pepper.
  • Grill on direct heat for 30-35 minutes, flipping every 5-7 minutes. Grill until the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 165 degrees F.
  • Move the drumsticks to the indirect side of the grill, and baste them with the Teriyaki BBQ Sauce (or your favorite BBQ sauce). Grill for an additional 5-10 minutes on indirect heat until the sauce sets and begins caramelize and the internal temperature reaches 175 degrees F.
