This is a Sandra Lee recipe that I modified to use drumsticks instead of drummettes which I think are expensive and a not even worth using, just an opinion. These were very easy to make and a big hit at our Super Bowl party. I just doubled the marinade/spice mixture. Oh and it uses a slow cooker, the greatest invention of mankind.
