  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 2 turkey drumsticks, about 1 pound each, rinsed and patted dry
  • 1/2 cup bottled barbecue sauce
  • 4 soft Kaiser rolls, warmed

Step 1Combine cumin, chili powder, salt and pepper in small dish. Rub spice mix into drumsticks. Place in baking dish lined with foil.

Step 2Roast drumsticks, uncovered, at 375 degrees, turning them every 15 minutes, until lightly browned and juices run clear when pierced with tip of sharp paring knife, about 55 minutes. Generously brush 1/4 cup barbecue sauce over drumsticks. Roast 10 minutes more.
