-Preheat your smoker to 350 degrees.

-Now, let’s prep the chicken drumsticks. You want to expose the bone. This is mainly for presentation purposes. Grab a sharp knife and be very careful. With your knife, go around the chicken drumsticks where the meat meets the flat area of the drumstick. Go around it a few times and cut away at the tendons as well.

-Now, grab a paper towel and pull that skin up and over the knuckle. Once you prepped them all, coat them in cooking oil and season with your favorite poultry seasoning.

-Coat them in pork panko (sub regular bread panko) place them in the smoker and leave them smoking until 150 internal temperature. While they are cooking, make your sweet-spicy sauce.

-Place those ingredients in a sauce pan and simmer on low for 10 min and stir consistently so nothing burns.

-Now remove the lollipops and heat up your oil to 350 degrees. Fry them for 5 min or until golden brown. You want the internal temperature to be at 175 degrees on the thickest part of the drumsticks.

-Now toss them in that delicious sauce and serve along your favorite sides.

 Highly recommend a meat thermometer.
