View Full Version : Chicken Lollipop Experiment

Had the day off, and Sako's chicken lollipops really caught my eye as I discovered that the large package of chicken in our deep freeze was in fact NOT wings, but drumsticks!

My technique isn't nearly as good as others I've seen (I should've done a second cut lower into the meaty section to clean-up some more tendons, etc.).

Decided to dust most of the bird with a championship rub from Caveman Cuisine, and the others with a Green Chile rub from AlbuKirky.

For the final glaze (only for the Caveman Cuisine rubbed bird), I chose a Rufus Teague Honey Sauce with some Cherry Preserves:

I'll have the Vortex up and running, perhaps with a small chunk of pecan... and I expect that this will take just 30-40 minutes of cooking.

More to come.

Great looking plate. And I agree, this place is great for the taste buds, and horrible for the diet, and wallet.

Looks great from here brother! I say you did a fine job trimming it. I don't waste too much time and just push the meat down, snip the tendons.
