Serves - Four persons
Preparation time - 20 minutes
Cooking time - 1½- 2 hours
2tsp garlic granules
1½ tsp Chinese five spice
1tsp ground coriander
1tsp sea salt
½tsp ground pepper
12 chicken wings, 1.3kg / 3lb total
Extra-virgin olive oil
1tbsp toasted sesame oil
1tsp grated garlic
1tsp peeled, finely grated fresh ginger
4tbsp hoisin sauce
2tbsp soy sauce
2tbsp light brown sugar
1tbsp rice vinegar
Garnish with two spring onions, thinly sliced on the diagonal
Prepare the barbecue for indirect cooking over low heat (120°C - 150°C ).
In a small bowl, mix all the rub ingredients. Brush the wings lightly with olive oil and then season them evenly with the rub.
Brush the BBQ cooking grates clean. Add apple wood chunks to the coals or add pre-soaked wood chips to a smoker box and close the lid. When smoke appears, arrange the wings, skin side down on the grates and roast over an indirect low heat with the lid closed for 1 hour.
Meanwhile, make the glaze: in a small saucepan, warm the sesame oil over a medium heat. Add the garlic and ginger and cook for 30-60 seconds, stirring constantly. Add the remaining glaze ingredients, mix well and cook for 1-2 minutes until simmering. Set aside off the heat.
After the first hour of cooking the wings, cut into one at the joint to check doneness. The meat should no longer be pink at the bone. If it is pink, let the wings cook for another 30 minutes before you glaze them.
Brush the wings all over with the glaze and cook for another 30 minutes.
Transfer the wings to a platter and garnish with spring onions, if using. Serve warm.
