Apricot preserves balances the spicy taste of chipotle chile in a delicious basting sauce.
tablespoon finely chopped onion
cup barbecue sauce
tablespoons apricot preserves
teaspoon chopped chipotle chile in adobo sauce (from 7-oz can)
turkey drumsticks (8 oz each)
Heat gas or charcoal grill. In 1-quart saucepan, cook onion and water over medium heat 3 to 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until onion is tender. Stir in barbecue sauce, preserves, chile and salt. Cook 1 to 2 minutes, stirring occasionally, until heated through. Reserve 3 tablespoons sauce.
Cover and grill drumsticks over medium-low heat 25 to 30 minutes, turning frequently and brushing with sauce during last 5 minutes, until juice of turkey is clear when thickest part is cut to bone (180°F).
Serve drumsticks with reserved 3 tablespoons sauce.
Turkey drumsticks come in various weights, so try to purchase two at close to the same weight. If the drumsticks are larger, you will need to grill them longer.
