Huckleberry glazed chicken wings with Crossroads rub ... yep, it works

We bought some huckleberry BBQ sauce back from the USA in June. I was eager to try this out on something, so did a cook with some ribs. It was okay, but I decided the sauce needed a kick. In an experiment, I added some sugar, cider vinegar and a pinch of salt, and used it to glaze on some chicken wings with Crossroads rub on them. That's a winning dinner. Or lunch, whatever. Full recipe is in the link below:

Had some for lunch today, lovely. Thanks for looking!

    Arsenal-Just a small wore out and broken down Weber kettle. No other means to cook at all.

    Great looking wings and a nice layout for the pics.  I'm sure they didn't last long.

    Ooo lah lah! Happy to help with some of the flavor, but you knocked those out of the park. That's a serious attention to detail on getting that incredible caramelized exterior. So even, it looks like it was painted. But glad it wasn't :) What you have there is actually what we strive for in our competition chicken.

    Nice cook sir, and awesome pictures! Thanks for the mention.

    Thanks again folks.

    @Nature Boy it was either your idea, or someone at DP HQ, to use Crossroads with the huckleberry BBQ sauce. I pinged DP on some social media medium back in June. Advice was spot on as usual.:)

    Also, next week's blog post is all about food photography, and how I use simple tricks to make food look good without it going cold in the process.

  • I keep seeing people’s post about DP’s products. Can’t find them here. Going to have to go online and order me some I think. Oh and those wings look killer.

    Hmm, hadn’t heard of Crossroads but after looking at some stuff on it, may need to give t a try. Is it a reasonable substitute for most things you can use Dizzy Dust on? My DD is running low so may check this one out next. 

    Oh and those wings look incredible.

    @Hook_emHornsfan_74 thanks. DP products are very good. I first used their Tsunami Spin on pork, was incredible. Check out this thread:

    @UNCHeels08 thanks. I use Crossroads quite often on pork ribs, usually a 50:50 combo with Dizzy Dust. Also use Crossroads on mutton sometimes.
