Found a small pack of surplus drumsticks in the freezer and decided to try a simple Yakitori marinade I read about recently: 1 part rice vinegar, 1 part mirin, 1/2 part soy sauce, 1/2 part sugar.  Came out okay but could use more 'kick'. Instead of true Yakitori over charcoal, used my new toy Ranger.

Tenderised and cut the bottom flat...


Chamber sealed...


Love my new toy pellet pooper, came to temp within 10 minutes, consumed just few handfuls of pellets, perfect for small cooks.


About 45 minutes @ 325F.  Afraid to try higher temperature for more crispy skin, due to sugar in the marinade.

    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    Great cook right there.  Nailed that color on the finish.  Lots of prep work.  Congrats.

    @bgebrent @buzd504 @SmokeyPitt @lousubcap Thanks, it's the soy sauce and sugar that gave it the colour, have to be careful with getting too much char though!

    Sorry, should have mentioned 'Traeger Ranger'.  To be honest I have never googled 'pellet pooper', too scared to do that now  :)
    @SmokeyPitt ; Thanks for the link.

    @lousubcap ; It's a lot of work pulling out the sinew but so worth it if you have the time and patience!

    Nice!  I have only made those once.  Your cook looks delicious!  Love that kind of marinade.  Please post if you end up modifying the marinade!

    I am avoiding any follow-on info about the toy pellet pooper.  I don't need and am trying hard not to want a new Q toy.

    Thanks Ashish, I decided to trade the Joe Jr (BNIB for months) for this, no regrets so far. We don't even camp or tailgate.

    Thanks! I'll probably google on Yakitori and look for variations, this one is quick and simple and I happen to have all the ingredients.
