Bacon week continues – to re-cap we’ve so far seen:
Now we’re continuing the bacon insanity by doing a collab with a ‘Cue Tang member from way back – Ol’ Turkey Bastard AKA Turk McGurk
I’m going to make like Marsellus Wallace and get medieval on your ass with another recipe from Slap Yo’ Daddy – Bacon Wrapped Turkey Lollipops (okay that doesn’t SOUND very medieval but seriously eating turkey drum sticks makes me feel like a bad ass viking)
The recipe involves a fair bit of prep work to get it right but is absolutely worth it.
Start by removing the skin (oy vey!)
Then cut away from the bone and remove the tendons and little bones as per SYD’s detailed instructions.
Mrs Grillah is a dental hygienist by trade so I used her surgical precision to assist on this!
Coat in a BBQ rub – I used the Cluckin’ Good Chicken Rub from Bella BBQ.
Wrap with bacon and secure using toothpicks. This is the area of my cooking that requires the most work and I again relied on Mrs Grillah’s fine motor skills.
Cook over indirect heat for 60 – 90 minutes depending on the size of the drumstick to an internal temp of around 75 degrees C.
I used foil to prop up the drumsticks as they wouldn’t stand on their own. Glaze with BBQ sauce throughout the cook.
Serve with beer and viking helmets.
