3/2 pounds Chickens (quartered with backs removed)
11 cups Chopped yellow onion

1 large onion

1 tablespoon Minced garlic

3 cloves

1/2 cup Vegetable oil
1 cup Tomato paste

10 ounces

1 cup Cider vinegar
1 cup Honey
1/2 cup Worcestershire sauce
1 cup Dijon mustard
1/2 cup Soy sauce
1 cup Hoisin sauce
2 tablespoons Chili powder
1 tablespoon Ground cumin
1/2 tablespoon Crushed red pepper flakes


Step 1 : Sauce

In a large saucepan on low heat, sauté the onions and garlic with the vegetable oil for 10 to 15 minutes, until the onions are translucent but not browned. Add the tomato paste, vinegar, honey, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, chili powder, cumin, and red pepper flakes. Simmer uncovered on low heat for 30 minutes.

Step 2 : Chicken

Heat the coals in a charcoal grill. Marinate the chickens in two-thirds of the barbecue sauce for a few hours or overnight in the refrigerator.

Step 3 : Chicken

Spread the bottom of the grill with a single layer of hot coals and then add a few more coals 5 minutes before cooking, which will keep the fire going longer. Place the chicken quarters on the grill, skin side down, and cook for about 45 minutes, turning once or twice to cook evenly on both sides. Brush with the marinade as needed. The chicken quarters are done when you insert a knife between a leg and thigh and the juices run clear.

Step 4 : Serve

Serve with extra barbecue sauce on the side.
