Whenever I'm choosing my chicken, I want to choose quality. That's why I always ensure it's raised by Canadian chicken farmers, by searching for the logo. By supporting Canadian chicken, you ensure that the chicken you buy at your local supermarket receives the highest standards of care and gets raised safely. Not only is it quality, but we are supporting our economy and our own Canadian farmers. Did you know that they secure 78,000 jobs in Canada and are mostly family-owned farms? I know that makes me feel good when looking for that logo.
**They are giving away $5000.00 on their website over at www.Chicken.ca and continually always find ways to give back to Canada**
Never be afraid to step out of your comfort zone with different cuts of chicken. Normally like white chicken? chicken breasts? Try chicken thighs or chicken drumsticks- they are delicious.
WHAT YOU'LL NEED FOR:

Pellet Grill (I used my Louisiana Grills Founders Premier, pellet grill)
Pellets (I used, Apple Blend by Louisiana Grills)
RECIPE FOR CHICKEN DRUMSTICKS - INSIDE OUT CHICKEN LOLLIPOPS
Preheat your pellet grill to 275 degrees. I used my Louisiana Grills Founders Premier pellet grill. Next, prepare your chicken drumsticks by using a sharp knife and cutting around the stem to remove them. This is called a "lollipop" chicken (for more of a visual, see instruction video below). Then you want to slide your knife down into the body of the chicken drumsticks, making four slices. This makes it easier to turn the chicken drumsticks - inside out.
Once all your inside out chicken lollipops are prepared. Use your favourite poultry seasoning and coat on all sides evenly. I used "Maple Walnut" by Louisiana Grills. Now, these BBQ chicken drumsticks are ready to hit your grill.
This recipe for chicken drumsticks requires you to place your inside out chicken lollipops directly onto your grill. You want an internal temperature of at least 165 degrees. Since they are dark meat, they are more forgiving and can be cooked slightly higher if desired. Once cooked, you can sauce them with your favourite BBQ sauce or leave them as I did. Enjoy!!
