1. Place all the spices into a piece of muslin and tie together so they are secure.

2. Pour the oil into a medium-size pan, then add the peppers, onions, garlic, ginger, cayenne, paprika, salt, all the ground spices and the muslin bag. Cook on a medium heat, lid-on, for approximately 20 mins, until it has softened, and then add the tomatoes and Tabasco®. Cook for a further 15-20 mins.

3. Add the tomato paste, honey, lime juice, Coca-Cola, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce and white wine vinegar, then reduce this on a medium heat until it becomes thick and jammy.

4. Remove the spice bag (this can be discarded), then transfer the marinade to a blender and purée til smooth. Pass the marinade through a fine sieve, then leave to cool.

To marinate and cook

5. Put the chicken drumsticks in a shallow dish. Pour over the marinade, making sure all the drumsticks are coated. Turn occasionally.

6. When ready to eat, grill the drumsticks on the barbecue or bake in the oven on a medium heat, until the chicken is cooked through (about 20 minutes). Serve with
ketchup, if you like.

coca cola, tomato paste and honey are the only ingredients you need to make a yummy bbq sauce.
I like a bit of ginger in there too, but I reckon coffee could work as a secret BBQ sauce ingredient
My daughter does a Trailer Trash ham which involves cooking it in Coca Cola, a Nigella recipe I think, apparently Diet Coke doesn't work though.
some good bourbon and also maple syrup instead of the coke would work well
I've tried the ham cooked in coca cola, its very nice.
and easy
