Cooking Jerk Chicken on the Grill:
Start the coals and make sure to preheat the grill first. Brush the grill grate with some oil to grease it and place chicken drumsticks on the grill.
Close the lid and cook for about 5-6 minutes. Open the lid and use metal tongues to flip the chicken quarter of the way. Close the lid and cook for another 5-6 minutes. Flip chicken another quarter of the way. Repeat until chicken is cooked all around. (Depending on the size of the drumsticks, it will take 30-35 minutes.)
Use a leave-in thermometer to take the temperature of the chicken as it cooks. Insert the thermometer into the thickest part of the biggest drumstick and cook until the internal temperature is 165°.
