Buffalo-Garlic Drumsticks

Here is a recipe I made last weekend, I was really craving Buffalo wings on Superbowl Sunday. I used five drumsticks, but they could be substituted with wings or thighs. I brushed the chicken with olive oil and cooked it at 425 Degrees on my Holland Grill for 45 minutes, with a handful of Hickory Flav-o-buds for some extra flavor. I then applied the sauce and let them let them cook for about another 10 minutes.
This recipe could be made in an oven at 425 Degrees or in an outdoor grill using indirect heat.

5 Chicken Drumsticks
Olive Oil

Hot Sauce Recipe:(was plenty for 5 drumsticks with a little left over)Check Spelling
1/4 Cup Louisiana Hot Sauce
1/4 Cup Ketchup
1/2 Tsp Worcestershire Sauce
1/4 Cup Unsalted Butter
1/2 Tsp Black Pepper
1/2 Tsp Garlic Powder
1/4 Tsp Onion Powder
1/4 Tsp Cayenne Pepper
1/4 Crushed Red Pepper

Mix all ingredients except butter in a non-reactive sauce pan and simmer on medium low for about 10-15 minutes. Remove from heat and stir the butter into the sauce. The sauce can be applied to the chicken by a basting brush or by putting the sauce in a rubber-maid container with the cooked chicken and shaking it.
