Grilled Chicken and Ribs Recipe

Ingredients

  1. Sweet & Tangy Barbecue Sauce
    1 tablespoon vegetable oil
    1 large yellow onion, minced
    2 cups ketchup
    8-ounce jar honey mustard
    2 tablespoons minced garlic
    1/4 cup brown sugar
    1/2 cup cider vinegar
    2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  1. 1/4 cup olive oil
    3 pounds chicken pieces, skin on (thighs, drumsticks, breasts)
    3 pounds pork ribs on the slab
    Salt and pepper to taste
    1/4 cup garlic powder

Directions

  1. Make barbecue sauce: Heat the oil in a large saucepan and sweat the onion until tender and translucent. Add all remaining ingredients and simmer for 10 minutes.
  2. Remove the sauce from the heat and use a handheld blender to process it to a smooth paste. (Alternatively, transfer it to an upright blender and back again.) Simmer gently for an additional 5 minutes.
  3. Separate the sauce into two containers. Use one to marinate and glaze the meat during grilling. Reserve the remainder for use as a sauce at the table.
  4. Lightly brush your grill with olive oil and preheat it to approximately 350°F. In the meantime, rinse the meat, pat it dry, and season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
  5. Arrange the chicken and ribs on the grill. Resist turning the meat for at least 5 minutes. This will help it sear nicely. After 5 minutes or so, turn the meat over, sear the other side for 5 more minutes. Turn again, and this time, brush the meat with the barbecue sauce. Then turn again every 5 minutes, repeating the process of brushing the meat with sauce until the chicken and ribs are cooked through and the barbecue sauce begins to caramelize and form a crust on the meat (35 to 40 minutes).
  6. Serve with more barbecue sauce on the side.

Serves 10.
