Drumsticks can make an inexpensive and, in this case, extremely delicious dinner.


  • 3 lbs chicken drumsticks
  • Seasoning4 Tbs whole Jamaican allspice, roasted until aromatic and ground in spice grinder
  • 1 tsp whole cloves, roasted until aromatic and ground in spice grinder
  • 2 Tbs red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 Tbs thyme
  • 1 Tbs kosher salt
  • 1 Tbs freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp white pepper
  • 1/2 tsp sage
  • 1/4 tsp ground mustard
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric
  • 1 Tbs dark brown sugar
  • For Jerk Marinade4 tsp Scotch bonnet pepper sauce
  • 4 scallions, diced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 Tbs fresh ginger, minced
  • 1 Tbs white vinegar
  • 1 Tbs dark Jamaican rum
  • 2 Tbs olive oil
  • 1 Tbs orange juice
  • Juice from one lime
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • 2 dashes bitters


  • Wash chicken and pat dry. With a knife, pierce the chicken so the marinade can be best absorbed. Set aside.
  • Combine all spice ingredients for the seasoning in a food processor. Add Scotch bonnet pepper sauce, scallions, garlic, ginger, vinegar, rum, olive oil, orange juice, lime juice, soy sauce, and bitters. Pulse until ingredients are combined.
  • Place the chicken in a plastic zip-top bag and pour marinade on top. Shake until the chicken is equally coated and let it marinate for at least 24 hours and a maximum of two days.
  • When the chicken is done marinating, cook on an oiled rack set 4 inches over coals. Cover and cook for approximately 15 to 20 minutes per side, or until juices run clear and internal temperature reaches 165F.
  • Serve with grilled plantains, chutney, red cabbage coleslaw, or rice. Enjoy!
