  • Deep Baking Dish


  • 2 lbs Chicken Drumettes Cut down around top of bone and push down to make a lollipop shape.
  • 1/2 lb Bacon Cut in half

  • 2 Cups Duck fat


  • French drumettes to turn into lollipops.
  • Cut back strips in half.
  • Take a piece of bacon and wrap it around each drumette.
  • Sprinkle with rub. At this stage I let them sit overnight.
  • remove from fridge, place in baking dish and fill with duck fat until drumette meat is covered.
  • Cover with tin foil, and allow to bake for 5 hours at 250° in the smoker or oven.
  • Remove from grill brown each drumette in a cast iron pan, dip in Apple Butter BBQ sauce, and place on a wire rack back on the grill for 10-15 minutes for sauce to set.
