Ingredients

For the chicken

  • 2 Cups buttermilk
  • 12 Ounces IPA beer
  • 2 Teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 Teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/4 Teaspoon cayenne
  • 1/2 Teaspoon cumin
  • 1 Tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 white onion, sliced
  • 2 Pounds chicken drumsticks and wings
  • Cilantro, finely chopped

For the glaze

  • 1/4 Cup sriracha
  • 1/3 Cup brown sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon salt
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 Cup tomato paste
  • 1/2 Cup IPA beer
  • 2 Tablespoons fish sauce
  • 1/3 Cup mirin

Directions

For the chicken

In a large bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, beer, salt, smoked paprika, cayenne, cumin, and brown sugar. Add the onion and chicken. Cover and place in the refrigerator for at least 6 hours.

For the glaze

When you’re ready to grill the chicken, make the glaze. In a saucepan set over medium-high heat, whisk together all the glaze ingredients. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently, until thickened, about 8 minutes.

Remove the chicken from the marinade, and discard the remaining marinade.

Heat the grill. Place the chicken on the grill, brush with the glaze, and cook for about 2 minutes. Flip the chicken, and brush the other side with glaze. Continue to flip and brush with glaze every 4 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through, about 20-25 minutes. Transfer chicken to a serving platter and sprinkle with chopped cilantro.

Grill Shopping Tip

Think twice before buying a thicker piece of meat; a 2-inch thick steak takes four times (not twice) as long as 1-inch thick steak to cook.

Grill Cooking Tip

If you're cooking something that's been marinated, make sure to pat the item dry before it hits the grill. Any sugar in the marinade will burn.
