This is a recipe for slow barbecued doves with Korean BBQ sauce. This is not a grilled doves recipe; if you want that, try this recipe. That said, this barbecue sauce is good on all sorts of foods, from beef to chicken to salmon. Feel free to use whatever your favorite barbecue sauce happens to be.
Mix all the ingredients for the barbecue sauce together in a blender and puree until smooth. This can be made up to a week in advance. You might want to double the recipe, as it's amazing and goes well on any grilled or barbecued food.
Salt the doves well, inside and out. Paint with the BBQ sauce. Get your grill ready, making a spot where there are no coals so you can cook over indirect heat. You want a smokey fire, so have some wood chips handy. If you're using a smoker, set it to 200F.
Set the doves breast side up in the grill, cover it and cook slowly until the legs will come off easily when pulled, anywhere from 1 hour to 90 minutes. Paint with the BBQ sauce every 30 minutes or so.
