oriental sticky barbecue sauce

  • 50 ml sweet soy sauce
  • 40 grams brown sugar
  • 2 tsp sambal oelek
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 cm ginger


  • sesame seeds
  • 1 spring onion cut into small rings
  • 8 drumsticks


Marinate drumsticks

  • Place all ingredients for the marinade in a bowl and mix well.
  • Put the drumsticks in a sealable bag and add the marinade. Mix it and let it marinate in the refrigerator for four hours.

Grill the drumsticks

  • Prepare the barbecue for indirect grilling. With a cone barbecue you create two different heat zones for this. Maintain a working temperature of about 150℃.
  • Place the drumsticks on the grid. Place a dripping pan underneath the drumsticks as well. The sticks can easily be left on the barbecue for an hour. Remove them from the barbecue at a temperature of 93 ℃.

Preparation of the barbecue sauce

  • Place all ingredients for the sauce in a saucepan. Mix everything together and let it sit on a medium heat for about 30 minutes until the sugars dissolve and the sauce thickens a bit.
  • When the drumsticks have been on the barbecue for an hour, dip them in the sauce one by one. Then put them back on the barbecue for 2-3 minutes. Repeat this two more times. In total, you dip them in the sauce three times.

To serve

  • Remove the drumsticks from the barbecue. Place them on a board or plate and sprinkle with the sesame seeds and spring onion.
