These Honey & Soy drum legs are one of my favorite recipes to date! The flavors complement one another and with a nice 4-hour marinade ever bite will be mouth-watering. You can also use it for any chicken bbq, which I highly recommend. The only thing I suggest is the larger size of the meat the longer you marinade to allow the marinade to have time to penetrate deeply into the meat.

  • Score your drum legs to allow the marinade to penetrate deeply within the meat.
