Really, really good--I had a hard time stopping myself from overeating. The changes I made were reducing the cumin to 1 tsp since I was afraid my daughter wouldn't like it and adding a tablespoon of brown sugar to the rub like Cooks Illustrated seems to do in most of their rubs. I also got a little bit of smoke from the leftover wood chips still in the grill from the last time I did BBQ on the grill. I used drumsticks as well. The white sauce kind of grew on me after a few tastes.

Depending on where you live in the South, it may be 85° on January 1 or chilly. If it's the latter, our team says to "bundle up, and do it." The results of these chicken drumsticks are worth a brief shiver.
