ingredients

BBQ sauce:

  • 2 dl ketchup
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • ½ dl espresso
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1½ tsp smoked paprika
  • ground coriander
  • ½ tsp ground cumin
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 2 tsp tabasco
  • 1 tsp chipotle pepper powder

preparation

1. Make the BBQ sauce first by mixing the ketchup through cumin in a small saucepan. Place over medium-low heat and bring to a boil. Let it simmer for 5-8 minutes, and then remove from the heat. Blend the ingredients in a blender until nice and creamy. Season with salt, pepper, tabasco and chipotle to your taste.

2. Make the chicken wings by placing the chicken wings in a re-sealable plastic bag with 1.5 dl of the BBQ Sauce. Leave them to marinate overnight. Barbecue the marinated chicken wings at high heat for about 2-3 minutes on each side. Add the rest of the BBQ sauce and barbecue the wings over indirect low to medium heat with the lid closed for 15-20 minutes. The chicken wings are done when the meat is falling off the bones. Place the BBQ chicken wings on a large plate and add crumbled Danablu on top.

3. Heat the grill at high heat and grill the marinated chicken wings for about 2-3 minutes on each side to brown.

4. Brush the wings with more BBQ sauce, and grill over indirect low to medium heat with the lid closed for 15-20 meeting.

5. Remove from heat and serve immediately with extra BBQ sauce.
