Smoked Spicy Teriyaki Drumsticks

READY IN: 2hrs 45mins
Recipe by PaulaG

This is a recipe that was adapted from Kraft Foods. It was a big hit at my recent cookout. I made my own barbecue sauce and used 1960's Catalina Dressing for the quick marinade. This is delicious served with smoked corn on the cob and coleslaw.

I scaled this back for 2 serves, for the DM and DS, as we cannot get Catalina sauce here I used recipe #44124 and as I do not have a smoker I backed the drumsticks on a rack in the oven and basted with a homemade (a gift from a friend) smoky b-b-q sauce over the hour that the drumsticks were in a 175C fan forced oven and the result very tasty moist tender drumsticks with the meat just about falling of the bone, thank you PaulaG made for Aussie/Kiwi Recipe Swap #71 December 2012.
