    1. Stir the beer, brown sugar, salt, paprika, black pepper, cayenne pepper and teriyaki marinade together in a bowl.
    2. Rub the drumsticks thoroughly with the vegetable oil. Poke several holes in the flesh of the chicken legs with a fork; arrange in a single layer in a glass dish. Pour the marinade over the drumsticks; marinate in refrigerator for 1 hour.
    3. Preheat barbecue for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.
    4. Remove the chicken from the marinade and shake off any excess liquid. Discard remaining marinade.
    5. Cook the drumsticks on the preheated barbecue until no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, turning one-quarter turn every 5 minutes, 20 to 25 minutes total.

    So juicy & yummy! Definately a keeper! Some members of my family have sodium restricted diets so I did not use any Teriyaki marinade nor salt, but I did add 1/4 c. soy sauce. I also let the chicken drumsticks marinade for closer to 3 hours and everyone couldn't get enough! Full stars!  -  03 Aug 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was really good! I used less pepper, paprika, and salt (about a tablespoon of each) and NO cayenne pepper. I also used chicken breast. But was delicious! Will defiantly make again!  -  02 Aug 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Pretty easy recipe.. I gave it four stars because I omitted all the salt and had to bake since we couldn't get the grill to start. The chicken was very moist and the marinade was pretty tasty but didn't penetrate the chicken like I thought it would. Would try again when it can be grilled.  -  04 Oct 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
