Do you remember in the early 1980s a fast food chain had a popular advertising campaign based on the slogan, "Where's the beef?" One of my favorite Perdue ads is a full page ad showing Frank holding a drumstick with a big bite missing. He's looking out at you, his eyebrows raised quizzically as he asks, "Who cares where the beef is?"
This recipe could have been used to cook the drumstick shown in the ad.
5 roaster drumsticks
salt and ground pepper to taste
8 ripe apricots, or 1 can (16-ounces) drained and coarsely chopped
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
3 tablespoons dark brown sugar
1/4 cup brandy
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
Season drumsticks with salt and pepper. Toss apricots with lemon; add remaining ingredients and toss. Wrap drumsticks individually with aluminum foil, adding a spoonful of sauce to each package. Grill 5 to 6 inches above hot coals or bake at 375oF for 1 hour, turning once. Unwrap drumsticks and place on grill, or broiling pan. Add drippings from foil packages to remaining sauce. Grill or broil drumsticks turning and basting frequently with sauce for 15 minutes or until cooked through.
