The BEST Barbecue Chicken Ever


About a million people have asked me for this recipe. Okay, a million might be an exaggeration, but at least a handful of people have asked, so here it is. Really, I can't take credit for it. I found it online and adapted it to my needs.

The story of this chicken in my life begins last summer. BryGuy and I typically do red meat (burgers, steaks, etc.) on the grill. Not because I don't like other meat, but because I've never had barbecue chicken that I really liked. Most of it was tough, dry, and not all that appealing. Well, I turned to the web to find a bbq chicken recipe that would make my mouth water, and I stumbled upon this gem that quickly became a household staple. The most important part about this recipe is the grilling process, low and slow is the name of the game. 

Do you want to know the best part? Once you invest in the spices, it's super cheap to make. I usually buy a big family pack of thighs and drumsticks so I can feed 6-10 people for less than $15 with this recipe.

Let me tell you my modifications:

  • The first time I made this I didn't have mustard powder and I forgot to put it on my grocery list. So when it came time to make it I figured, mustard powder is like mustard, right??? So I slathered the chicken in mustard and then put on the magic dust. 
  • I also do not make my own my my own barbecue sauce, I use Sweet Baby Ray's, it rocks. Most of the time I use the Original, but sometimes I mix it up with the Sweet 'n Spicy. 
  • Often times I'll add some additional spices based on what's in my cabinet. I've thrown in onion powder, and a mesquite seasoning mix before, so feel free to play around with it!




And yes, BryGuy grills all year round. He puts on his long johns, bundles up, and gets out there in the backyard! Isn't he the best? 

Do you have a favorite barbecue chicken recipe? I don't see myself getting sick of this one, but it wouldn't hurt to mix it up once in a while.
