Ingredients

Cooking Instructions

  1. Combine coffee, 2 T. brown sugar, 1/2 tsp. salt and ancho chili powder in a mixing bowl.  Rub dry mix onto thighs and refrigerate overnight.
  2. Toast cumin seeds in a dry skillet over medium heat for 5 minutes.  Continually stir to prevent burning of seeds.  Whisk in stout and 2 T. of brown sugar and continue to cook for 10-12 minutes or until liquid is reduced by half.  Strain liquid to remove seeds.  Add honey and 1 tsp. of salt.  Set aside, or make a day ahead and refrigerate.
  3. Prepare charcoal until coals ready (ash in color).  Place thighs on grill, cover and grill for 25-30 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 170°F.  Turn thighs occasionally while cooking and baste with stout reduction.
