Grilled Hoisin Garlic Drumsticks with Tomato-Corn Salad
- 8 chicken drumsticks, about 2 pounds total
- Kosher salt, to taste
- Ground black pepper, to taste
- 1/2 cup Soy Vay Hoisin Garlic sauce
- 3 ears corn
- 1 pound tomatoes, cut into small dice
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- Thinly sliced basil leaves, for garnish
- Season drumsticks with salt and pepper, and rub with about 1/3 cup hoisin garlic sauce, reserving rest for basting.
- Marinate at least 30 minutes, up to four hours.
- As chicken is marinating, prepare charcoal grill for both direct (medium-high heat) and
- indirect cooking, placing coals on one half of grill. Discard used marinade.
- Grill chicken, starting with skin side down, directly over coals about 8–10 minutes, keeping lid closed as much as possible and turning chicken once or twice.
- Move to indirect heat where there are no coals, cover grill and continue to cook for another 25–35 minutes until juices run clear and an internal temperature of 165ºF has been reached, basting with extra sauce occasionally in last 10 minutes of cooking.
- To make salad, boil corn if needed for about 2-3 minutes, then cut kernels off cob.
- Toss with tomatoes and olive oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper and stir in basil.
- Serve salad and drumsticks together.
