Ultimate Grilled Chicken

For the marinade:

2 tablespoons ground mustard

2 garlic cloves, crushed

1 tablespoon crushed red pepper flakes

1/2 teaspoon dried basil

1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

 3 tablespoon brown sugar

½ tablespoon paprika

1 tablespoon onion powder

1/3 cup red wine vinegar

1 cup canola oil

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper


8 chicken bottoms


For the sauce:

2 cups ketchup

1/2 cup red wine vinegar

½ cup brown sugar

1/2 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper

1/2 tablespoon onion powder

1/2 tablespoon ground mustard

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1 tablespoon soy sauce


Make the marinade:

Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl, except the oil and salt and pepper. Slowly whisk in the oil and season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Pat chicken dry and place in a large glass bowl or baking dish. You can even use a Ziploc bag but do not marinate in a foil pan.  Add prepared marinade and turn chicken pieces to coat all side. Refrigerate at least 1 hour or up to 8 hours.

Grill the chicken:

Thirty minutes before you're ready to cook, take the chicken out of the refrigerator and allow it to come to room temperature. Preheat the grill to a high and brush grates well with a strong grill cleaning brush. Wipe grates with an oil-dampened paper towel and turn off one burner or pile charcoal to one side of the grill.   This will give you a medium temperature atmosphere, of about 300 degrees.

Place the chicken halves on cooler side of the grill, meat side down. Cover grill and cook for about 35-40 minutes. Flip chicken over and let it brown until the chicken becomes golden, about 15 to 20 minutes.

While the chicken is cooking prepare the sauce:

In a large saucepan, combine all ingredients. Bring mixture to a boil, reduce heat to a simmer. Cook uncovered, stirring frequently, for 30 minutes or until reduced and thick.

Brush the chicken with the barbecue sauce during the last 5 minutes of cooking.

Remove from grill and serve immediately.
