Apple Stout Barbecue Sauce: In saucepan, heat oil over medium-high heat; sauté onion and garlic until softened. Add stout, applesauce, maple syrup, molasses, vinegar, tomato paste and salt.

In batches, transfer to blender and purée until smooth. Pass through fine sieve into clean pot. Bring to simmer over medium heat; cook until thickened and reduced to about 3 cups (750 mL), 15 to 20 minutes.

Place chicken on greased grill over medium heat. Close lid and grill, turning every 10 minutes, until juices run clear when chicken is pierced, about 30 minutes.

Brush chicken with half of the sauce; grill, uncovered and turning often, until glazed, about 5 minutes.
