Bacon – Ready When YOU Want It!

Thursday, May 10, 2012 Review by judywrites

Cuisine at Home magazine offers this great tip so you can have bacon when YOU want it!

Bacon Ready

Instead of making just a few servings of bacon at a time, prepare the whole package at once — even a bulk package. Arrange the cooked strips between layers of paper towels, place them flat in an airtight freezer container, and store the container in the freezer. Whenever you crave bacon for brunch, salads, or BLTs, reheat strips in the microwave — there’s no need to thaw!”

Sunday fun day! What a recipe / thought. Bacon does make everything taste better – so why not chicken drumsticks? Seriously…


Begin by preparing the spice rub.

3 Tbsp Spanish Paprika

1 Tbsp Garlic Powder

1 Tbsp Granulated Onion

1 Tbsp Sea Salt
1/2 Tsp Black Pepper

1/2 Tsp White Pepper

1/2 Tsp Chipotle Chile Pepper

  • Brush the chicken drumsticks with canola or vegetable oil.
  • Apply the spice rub to the chicken drumsticks.
  • Marinate the drumsticks in the refrigerator for 4 hours prior to grilling.
  • Barbecue the drumsticks on a medium hot grill for 60 minutes using indirect heat (300-350 degrees).
  • Brush the drumsticks with your favorite bbq sauce. I prefer Blues Hog.
  • Continue grilling for an additional 10 minutes prior to serving.
