  • DifficultyMedium
6 turkey drumsticks, 14 to 16 ounces each
Sherry Vinegar-Brown Sugar Glaze:
Olive oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil
Sherry Vinegar-Brown Sugar Glaze, recipe follows
2 shallots, coarsely chopped
4 cloves garlic, coarsely chopped
1 cup aged sherry vinegar
1/4 cup dark brown sugar
1 tablespoon Spanish paprika
4 canned plum tomatoes, drained and chopped
4 cups homemade chicken stock
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1) Prepare a charcoal grill for indirect grilling or heat a gas grill to a medium heat. Brush the drumsticks with oil and season with salt and pepper.

2) If using a charcoal grill, place the drumsticks on the grill and cook until golden brown on all sides.

3) Move the drumsticks to the cooler part of the grill, place the lid on and continue cooking until just cooked through, about 45 minutes to 1 hour, brushing with the glaze during the last 20 minutes of cooking.

4) Remove the drumsticks from the grill, brush with more of the glaze and leave to rest for 10 minutes before serving.

5) If using a gas grill, cook the drumsticks at medium heat the whole time with the lid closed after a crust has formed.

For the sherry vinegar-brown sugar glaze:
1) Heat the oil in a medium saucepan over a medium-high heat. Add the shallots and garlic and cook until a light golden brown. Add the vinegar and cook until reduced by half.

2) Add the sugar, paprika, tomatoes and chicken stock and cook until reduced by half and the tomatoes are very soft. Transfer to a blender and blend until smooth.

3) Return the mixture to the saucepan and cook until thickened; season with salt and pepper. Allow to cool before using.
