Place the drumsticks in a large bowl or glass baking dish.
In a measuring cup, combine the lime peel, lime juice, chile peppers, honey, garlic, cumin, oil, and salt until well-blended.
Pour over the drumsticks, rubbing the mixture into the meat and the slashes.
Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
Coat a grill rack with cooking spray.
Preheat the grill to medium.
Remove the drumsticks from the marinade.
Bring the remaining marinade to a boil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat.
Place the drumsticks on the grill and brush with the marinade.
Cover and grill, turning the drumsticks often, for 15 to 20 minutes, or until a thermometer inserted in the thickest portion registers 170°F and the juices run clear.
Place on a clean platter.
Sprinkle the drumsticks with the cilantro and drizzle with the juice from 2 or 3 lime wedges.
