Ingredients

6 turkey drumsticks, 14 to 16 ounces each

Olive oil

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Sherry Vinegar-Brown Sugar Glaze, recipe follows

Sherry Vinegar-Brown Sugar Glaze:

2 tablespoons olive oil

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

Directions

  1. Prepare a charcoal grill for indirect grilling or heat a gas grill to medium heat. Brush drumsticks with oil and season with salt and pepper. Place on the grill over the coals (if using charcoal grill) and grill until golden brown on all sides. 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. Remove from the grill, brush with more of the glaze and let rest 10 minutes before serving. If using gas, cook at medium heat the whole time with the lid closed after a crust has formed.

Sherry Vinegar-Brown Sugar Glaze:

  1. Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat on the grates of the grill. Add the shallots and garlic and cook until a light golden brown. Add vinegar and cook until reduced by half. Add sugar, paprika, tomatoes and chicken stock and cook until reduced by half and tomatoes are very soft. Transfer to a blender and blend until smooth. Return to the saucepan and cook until thickened; season with salt and pepper. Let cool.
