Ingredients
  • 3 1/2 pounds mixed chicken parts (breasts halved)
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 cups Kansas City-Style BBQ Sauce, recipe follows
  • Kansas City-Style BBQ Sauce:
  • 2 tablespoons neutral-tasting oil, such as grapeseed or vegetable
  • 6 cloves garlic, smashed
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 slightly heaping tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • Pinch ground cloves
  • 2 cups ketchup
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/2 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup dark molasses
  • 1/4 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons English-style dried mustard
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 bay leaf
Directions

1. Preheat a grill with high, medium high, and medium zones. Lightly oil grates.

2. Season chicken with salt and black pepper, to taste and place it skin-side down on grate on high heat. Cook until skin is crisp, turning once, about 5 minutes. Dip each piece of chicken in sauce, shake off excess, and return to grill-dark meat pieces over medium high and white meat over medium heat. Cook, covered, basting once more, until glazed and an instant-read thermometer inserted in thickest part of each piece of chicken registers 170degreesF, about 25 to 30 minutes.

1. Heat the oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the garlic, tomato paste, chili powder, paprika, red pepper flakes, allspice, and cloves and cook, stirring, until paste is dark brick red, about 3 minutes. Add the ketchup, water, vinegar, molasses, brown sugar, salt, soy sauce, Worcestershire, mustard, black pepper, and bay leaf.

2. Adjust the heat to maintain a gentle simmer and cook until the flavors come together, about 30 minutes. Remove and discard bay leaf before using.
