Alternate Seasoning:
  • 1.5 tbsp Kosher Salt
  • 1 tbsp Black Pepper
  • 1 tbsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 tbsp Brown Sugar
  • 2 tsp Onion Powder
  • 1.5 tsp White Sesame Seeds
  • 1.5 tsp Black Sesame Seeds
  • 1.5 tsp Red Chili Flakes
  • ½ tsp Cayenne Powder
Gochujang Honey Glaze:
  • 1.5 cups Honey
  • 1 tbsp Gochujang Sauce
  1. Start by making a cut about ⅓ of the way done the drumstick towards the knuckle side. Slice all around the drumstick and pull off the excess meat/skin until the bone is the only thing showing. Trim off any excess tendons, then press the meat down to form your “lollipop.” Wrap a little bit of foil over the bones to prevent burning, if you like. Repeat this step for the rest of the drumsticks.
  2. Add the seasoning into a bowl (or just the Korean BBQ Seasoning) and thoroughly coat the meat. Set aside until ready to cook.
  3. Preheat your smoker for 275F indirect. Add some additional wood chunks or chips for added flavor.
  4. Add your chicken to the smoker (preferably on a smoker rack) and cook for about 2-2.5 hours until they reach 175F. When the chicken is close to being done, add a sauce pan with all the ingredients for the Honey Gochujang Glaze. Warm up for 1-2 minutes. Once warm, pull the saucepan off, stir the mixture and carefully dip each lollipop into the sauce until it is evenly coated. Let the excess glaze drain off and place the chicken back on the smoker rack. Repeat for each lollipop, then let cook for 5 more minutes.
  5. When chicken is done, pull off and rest for 2-3 minutes. Garnish with chopped scallions, serve and enjoy!
