Smoked Chicken Drumsticks

Pat chicken dry

Rub all sides of drum with Chicken Rub* (see below).

Put chicken into Ziploc bag or air tight container and place in the fridge until you’re ready to use. 

Set Smoker to 275 

Once preheated, place chicken directly on rack, in the smoker.

Insert a thermometer probe into the thickest part of one of the drum.

Close smoker.

Add Cherry (or apple) wood chips. And do so every 45 minutes.

Cook until temp reaches 183.

Then, I bring into the airfryer and put at 375 for 5-7 minutes. The skin crisps up a bit.

Be careful, it is hot and ridiculously juicy!
