Like chicken wings? You'll love these sticky and sweet chicken ribs!! A chicken rib is not really a “chicken rib” - it's part of the scapula/shoulder meat of a chicken.

Sticky Chicken Ribs


  • 1kg chicken ribs or wings
  • Oil, for helping the seasoning adhere
  • Rub & Grub Sticky Sesame
  • Honey, for serving
  • Chives, finely chopped for garnishing


  1. Pre-heat your BBQ for high-heat indirect cooking at 215°C/400°F. For this recipe we used a Weber Kettle with a Rub & Grub Kettle Krown to form a "wing ring".
  2. Add a wood chunk to the coals. We like to use myall or cherry with chicken.
  3. Lightly coat the ribs/wings with oil, it helps the seasoning adhere.
  4. Season liberally with Rub & Grub Sticky Sesame and leave to marinate for at least 30 minutes.
  5. Cook the ribs/wing until their internal temperature reaches 74°C/165°F.
  6. Once plated, drizzle the honey over the ribs/wing and garnish with chives. We like to use Blend Smoked Honey - it's a classic and proven pairing for Sticky Sesame.
