Chicken Ingredients:
  • 6-8 Chicken Drumsticks trimmed
  • 4-6 Flat Metal Skewers
Mojo Marinade Ingredients:
  • 3 Blood Oranges juiced
  • 3 Lemons juiced
  • 2 Limes Juiced
  • cup of Pimento Peppers
  • cup of Cilantro chopped
  • 2 tbsp of Paprika
  • 1 tbsp of Cumin
  • 2 tsp of Oregano
  • 2 tsp of Cayenne Powder
  • 4-6 cloves of Garlic
  • 1.5 tbsp of Salt
  • 1 tbsp of Pepper
  • 2 tbsp of Oil
  1. In a blender, mix all the ingredients for the Mojo Marinade until smooth. Before adding the marinade to the chicken, pour a small amount into a bowl and set aside. Place chicken into a bowl and pour in marinade. Mix thoroughly and let marinate for 4-12 hours.
  2. Using Cowboy Charcoal, fill a full chimney of coals, light and let preheat for 15 minutes. Pour coals into grill and place into one pile for indirect grilling with skewers.
  3. Skewer the chicken drumsticks by placing one skewer above the bone and one skewer offset a half an inch & underneath the bone to prevent it from twisting. Skewer 3-4 drumsticks to each pair of skewers.
  4. Place the skewers over the fire so that they are getting radiant heat from the Cowboy Charcoal. Cook for 8 minutes per side or until the internal temperature, not touching bone, is 165A few minutes before pulling the drumsticks off, lather with the marinade we set aside as the beginning to get a nice sear.
  5. Pull off, let rest for 5 minutes and enjoy!
