Make the Pig Beach BBQ Seasoning:

In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients. Store in an airtight container until ready to use.

Make the Chicken:


Preheat the grill to medium-high heat on one side and low heat on another to create temperature zones for cooking.


While the grill is heating, toss chicken thighs with 3/4 cup Pig Beach BBQ Seasoning in a large bowl. Allow them to marinate for 15 minutes.


In a separate bowl, make the sweet chili glaze and dipping sauce: combine the Sriracha, sweet chili sauce, honey, sambal oelek, Old Bay seasoning, cumin and coriander. Set aside.


Once the grill is up to temperature, place the seasoned chicken thighs on the medium-high heat zone of the grill and cook for 6 to 8 minutes per side.


Once the chicken thighs reach an internal temperature of 160 F, transfer to the low heat zone of the grill and brush the tops of the thighs with the sweet chili glaze and dipping sauce.


Cook for about 5 minutes on the low zone of the grill to create a sticky charred glaze. Garnish with sliced scallions, fresh cilantro and lime wedges. Serve with additional sweet chili dipping sauce on the side.
