The rich flavors of Korean BBQ have been popular across the country for years. We like it very much. I think I’ve mentioned many times that my dad lived in Korea for a few years when he was young, so I grew up fascinated by Korea.

When my husband and I first got married, we lived near a Korean restaurant and we loved going there. We were usually the only non-Koreans in the restaurant and the waitresses would question our orders as usually non-Koreans insist on limited menu choices. We had to convince her that we really wanted to take the plunge and try some of the more exotic options. good time.

Well, these drumsticks are anything but exotic. It’s almost BBQ chicken with Asian inspired ingredients, but super delicious. These drumsticks are sticky and delicious, a little spicy and very tasty.
