Low carb recipe for Absolutely Classic Barbecued Chicken which belongs to the Poultry recipe category.

Ingredients Needed

  1. 3 pounds (1.4 kg) cut-up chicken (on the bone, skin on?choose light or
  2. dark meat, as you prefer)
  3. cup (40 g) Classic Barbecue Rub
  4. cup (120 ml) chicken broth
  5. cup (120 ml) oil
  6. cup (120 ml) Kansas City Barbecue Sauce
  7. Wood chips or chunks, soaked for at least 30 min

Cooking Instructions

Get your grill going, setting it up for indirect smoking.

While the grill's heating, sprinkle the chicken with all but a tablespoon of the rub.

Combine the reserved rub with the chicken broth and oil to make a mop.

When your fire is ready, place the chicken over a drip pan, add the wood chips or chunks, and close the grill.

Let it smoke for half an hour before you start to baste it with the mop.

Then mop it every time you add more chips or chunks, using a clean utensil each time you baste.

Smoke the chicken for about 90 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer registers 180F (85C).

When the chicken is just about done, baste the skin side with the Kansas City Barbecue Sauce and move it over the fire, skin-side down, for 5 minutes or so.

Baste the other side with the sauce using a clean utensil, turn it over, and give it another 5 minutes over the fire.

Boil the remainder of the sauce and serve with the chicken.

Feel free to use this same basic method with any rub and any sauce!
