Giants… yup.. the Giants. In this case we’re talking turkey… drumsticks to be precise. These make a main course fit for football kings, especially when you have them served up by someone wearing a jester’s hat.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 1 or 2 drumsticks per person
- A grill!
- 1/2 cup ketchup
- 1/3 cup Duck Walk red wine
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 teaspoon cumin
- 1/4 teaspoon chipotle chili powder
Make the sauce ahead of time. In a medium saucepan, add olive oil, garlic, chipotle powder, and cumin. Allow to heat through, while stirring, for 1 minute. Add red wine and brown sugar. Simmer for 2-3 minutes. Add in soy sauce, vinegar, ketchup, and Worcestershire sauce. Simmer for 2 minutes more. Remove from heat, allow to cool before using.
Game day – fire up the grill… remove the skin from the drumsticks and trim off any excess fat. Put sauce on them and on to the grill. Baste with the sauce as they cook. When ready… put them on a platter and call for the Jester.
What, you have no in-house jester you say… here’s how you make your very own jester:
Take little pieces of paper and make numbers 5, 10, 15, 20, all the way up to fifty. Put these pieces of paper in the jester’s hat. As your guests arrive, they have to pick a number. As the game starts, and the opening kick off is returned, find out who has the number that is furthest away from the starting yard of scrimmage… THEY’RE the jester!
