Instant Pot Barbecued Drumsticks

Instant Pot Barbecued Drumsticks

I have a true confession. And don’t get too excited to hear some juicy tidbit. It’s just that I’ve never been a huge fan of chicken legs and/or drumsticks. It was these Instant Pot Barbecued Drumsticks that converted me. Done in the Instant Pot, this budget cut of chicken becomes absolutely luscious, beautifully rendered and moist. A short stint under the broiler with your favorite barbecue sauce crisps the skin and gives Instant Pot Barbecue Drumsticks lovely caramelization. If you’re not feeling the broiler, you can’t go wrong with tossing these on the grill to finish.

New York Chicken Spiedies

New York Chicken Spiedies

So raise your hand if you’d like a Spiedie, maybe my New York Chicken Spiedies. If these are new to you, Spiedies are chunks of highly marinated meat, in this case, chicken, skewered and grilled to perfection, then served on a fresh, soft roll; it has to be soft, nothing too fancy. And then drizzled with the same garlicky herby vinaigrette it was marinated in, not just because that gives it a double dose of flavor, but because it also kind of melds that gorgeous, juicy grilled chicken and the bun into one cohesive sandwich.

Cider Glazed Ribs

Cider Glazed Ribs

Well, I’m still in Atlanta, still waiting for my daughter’s wedding and getting all the treatment. A mani/pedi, a massage, cheese and wine. Directions on how to drive and park. (Kids, ugh.) Lemme tell ya, though, this is the life. These Cider Glazed Ribs I made a while back are all but a whisper of a memory, now, but I think they’d be fabulous on Memorial Day Weekend.

Sweet Ancho Spice Rub

This is the season, isn’t it, if you haven’t already broken out the grill, to do it now? I * think* it’s finally safe, although this last week I had to get the winter jacket out as temperatures plummeted into the ’30s in the Twin Cities and Denver had snow. But if you are grilling for Memorial Day and doing ribs (or maybe a pork butt) think about this Sweet Ancho Spice Rub.
