Honey ginger Glazed Chicken Lollipops

Ingredients
 
8 chicken drum sticks
1 inch ginger chopped
4 scallions sliced with white and green parts seperated
¼ cup soy sauce
¼ cup rice wine vinegar
¼ cup honey
 
Instructions
 
Cut the chicken drum stick 1 inch below the end of the bone. Make sure to keep the knife perpendicular to the bone and work your way all the way around.
Using a kitchen towel grab ahold of the section on meat on the bone side of the cut you just made and work it off of the bone. Repeat this process with the rest of the
chicken. Season the meat with salt.
Preheat your smoker or grill to 375F. Place the chicken on the smoker to cook.
While the chicken cooks combine the soy sauce, vinegar, whites of the onion, honey, and ginger in a blender. Blend the mixture until the ginger is pulverized.
When the chicken has an internal temperature of 160F glaze it with the soy sauce mixture and cook for 3 minutes before glazing the chicken again.
Put the chicken on a platter and garnish with the greens from the scallions.

Developed specifically for gas grills, this unique smoker box features a v-shaped bottom which allows it to sit between the flame deflector bars of most gas grills. This positions the smoke right beneath the grill grate for the most concentrated smoke flavor, allowing the convenience of a gas grill without compromising wood smoke flavor. All V-shaped smoker boxes feature hinged lids.
