BBQ chicken legs for beginners

Ingredients for 4 people:

6 chicken legs,
1 bay leaf,
some black peppercorns,
1 teaspoon seasoning powder or salt

for the gravy:
350 ml Univer ketchup
4 tablespoons of honey,
a pinch of oregano, basil, thyme, Cayenne pepper or red hot pepper,
coarsely ground black pepper and salt


The night before the BBQ, remove skin from chicken legs and cut in half at the joint. Cook meat in water seasoned with bay leaf, pepper and seasoning powder (salt) until almost soft for about 35 minutes. Let it cool in the stock, then cover and put it in the refrigerator.

Next day, mix the ingredients for the gravy and roll the legs into the gravy.

When the barbecue grill is hot enough and the charcoal is slightly glowing under it, drain and put chicken legs onto the grill and fry them for about 4 minutes, turn them over and fry for about another 4 minutes. The meat is completely done and will have a nice crust, but be careful as it can fry or burn faster because of the honey.
