Chicken thighs, or drumsticks as they are commonly known, are one of the easiest ways to get a charming yet delicious meal fast. A quick dish doesn't mean you have to miss out on smokey flavor - this recipe combines simplicity and speed while still allow time for the chicken to absorb the wood pellet smoke.


Step 1

Coat the drumsticks with olive oil Season the drumsticks with the paprika, salt, and black pepper or substitute with your favorite chicken rub.

Step 2

Set your Brisk It grill to 180°F with the lid closed. 

Step 3

Once ignited, place the drum sticks diagonally across the grill grates. Smoke for 30 minutes.

Step 4

After smoking for 30 minutes, change the grill temperature to 375°F. Grill the chicken for 35 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F.

Step 5

Once the chicken reaches an ideal temperature of 165°F, remove from the grill and rest for 10 minutes.

Step 6

Serve with your favorite barbecue sauce and enjoy!
