Joe's Spicy BBQ Chicken

Oklahoma Joe's Recipe

Serves 8

4 chicken halves
1/2 cup Joe's Pork and Poultry Rub
1 cup Joe's BBQ Sauce
1 cup Hot BBQ Sauce

Fire up your grill/smoker with charcoal; preheat your gas grill. Make sure to build the fire to one side of the grill, or in the firebox so that you cook with indirect heat.

Sprinkle Joe's Pork and Poultry Rub liberally all over chicken halves. Once charcoal is ready to cook on, add a few mesquite wood chunks to the fire; on your gas grill put some chips in a foil pouch and place right next to your burner.

Place chicken halves onto grill/smoker that is at a temperature around 275 degrees (If you have built your fire in the grill/smoker, then group the chicken breasts away from the coal bed and near the smoke stack.) Every 15 minutes, turn chicken. Add charcoal and wood as needed to maintain cooking temperature.

Mix the BBQ Sauce together and preheat the sauce on grill. After chicken halves have been on smoker for 1 1/2 hours start to baste the chicken halves with sauce. Continue to baste and cook chicken halves until they reach an internal temperature of 160 degrees against the bone.

Once you reach 160 degrees remove chicken halves from the grill and serve with your favorite side dishes.
