    Cooking poortex drumsticks in the rain

    I accidentally bought a bag of frozen drumsticks thinking they were wings.serves me right for not going to the butcher but the Covid situation had me limiting stops.

    I've recently dusted off my 26" and figured this was a job for my poortex.

    Korean flavors in the marinade. I made a Gochujang-molasses sauce to apply later in the cook and some Alabama white sauce as a final touch. I've never done drumsticks before except maybe once when a guest brought some over.

    I do drums often. Lots of meat on them, and they are relatively cheap. Also almost impossible to over cook them. The white sauce is a nice touch. 😋

      So does my buddy from across the street. I liked them but still prefer wings to drums. But it's still bbq chicken no matter how you slice it 😉

    Not half bad and the rain didn't amount to much. Now I'm eating and taking in the UFC fight night. It's nice to have live sports starting to make a comeback.

      Nice cook! I’m curious as to how you made the gochujang molasses sauce. I’ve seen the chef Roi on the Netflix series “The Chef show” use it a lot, but I have yet to try it myself.

        He puts everything in that sauce. Never the same twice, I know that feeling.

      That’s a cool flavor profile, Korean overlaid with the white sauce. How was it? It looks great!

          Those legs have awesome color. I love doing legs, wings, thighs, quarters, even did half chickens one time (although I had to keep adding fuel to the Vortex). Tell us about your sauces, prying minds want to know and copy !!!

          Just a hint on the poortex, wrap aluminum foil at the fire grate level all around the poortex. It forces more air to and thru the fire and makes clean up a breeze.

            A poortex is when you go to the second-hand store, buy a stainless steel bowl, and cut the bottom out rather than spending money on a commercially available Vortex.

            Thanks Attjack. I went to @Henrik's post and will be going to the Goodwill Store to shop for the bowl today!

          Henrik Troutman The sauces aren't mine and neither is the gochujang white sauce paring. I used this combo on a couple of batches of wings in recent months and found the recipes on foodnetwork. In the past, I also made blue cheese sauce and I would say it's even better with the gochujang than the white sauce. It offered more of contrast instead of hot on hot. The color was good on the drums but I would pull them 5 minutes earlier as the smallest had a little too much char for my liking.

          "Just a hint on the poortex, wrap aluminum foil at the fire grate level all around the poortex. It forces more air to and thru the fire and makes clean up a breeze."

          Nice tip. I could see buying another pizza pan and making a poortex drip pan out of it.

          I really like the versatility the vortex (Poortex) adds to the kettle. I don’t do drumsticks but love how it cooks wings. I just finished dinner otherwise Inwould be heading to you house. Nice job. Adding the SloNSear just adds to the versatility.

              Looks great! Love that sauce idea, sounds delicious. I have been cooking drumsticks more often than other parts lately. I get a pack of 5-6 nice sized drums at our local grocery store for about $2.50. Hard to pass on that.
