One of my favourite summer time meals, is corn on the cob. When it is in season it truely is so flavourful. I recently picked a dozen up at the Parkdale Market and served it with chicken legs. The chicken was basted with my father in laws homemade bourbon bbq sauce. This sauce has a really nice tangy flavor. I am still keeping my typing to a minimal, so this will be a short post.
2 T butter
1 large shallot, chopped
2 garlic cloves, chopped
2 ounces of bourbon
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup of honey
1 T ancho pepper, finely chopped
8 ounces of chili sauce
8 ounces of barbecue sauce
3 ounces of wing sauce
In a large saucepan, melt the butter, add the shallot and garlic cloves and saute for 2-3 mins. Stir in the bourbon, sugar and honey. Heat through for about 1 minute. Add the pepper, chili, bbq and wing sauce. Cook stirring occasionally for about 2 minutes.
Baste chicken with this sauce and let sit for about 15 minutes prior to cooking.
Preheat grill to med high and cook chicken (can baste with more sauce if you like your chicken saucy) until chicken is cooked.
