Chef's choice -- barbecue sauce
There is nothing that speaks more of summer in the city, than sipping on a libation and nibbling on wings dripping in sweet sticky sauce.
That can occur in your backyard or at one of the many patios restaurants around the city.
Here's a barbecue sauce recipe that you can use on chicken wings or ribs.
45 ml oil
1 teaspoon dijon Mustard
1/2 cup brown Sugar
1 chili pepper
2 teaspoons chili powder (use more or less to taste)
1 teaspoon liquid smoke (available at most Asian food stores)
1/2 teaspoon hickory salt (or regular salt)
2 cups Ketchup
1 cup water
1 clove garlic, crushed
Yields 1 litre
Combine all ingredients together, except oil, stirring well.
Bring to a boil and simmer for 40 minutes.
Strain and use over wings or ribs. (add a shot of Bourbon to booze them up a little)
