Step 5.

  • Once the grill is hot enough, sear chicken (1-3 min per side) If saucing, give the thighs a good coat and while searing one side bast the other and then flip sear bast and repeat until you have the colour and glaze desired. We have used Heavenly Hell The Buffalos Bluff Korean BBQ sauce & wing glaze which is a show stopper with a touch of heat and sweetness alike.
