Ingredients

  • 2 broiler/fryer chickens (3 1/2 - 4 lbs each), cut up
  • 1 1/2 c. BBQ Sauce

Instructions

  • Place chicken on a lightly oiled grill rack. Grill chicken, covered, over medium heat for 30 minutes, turning occasionally, about every 10 minutes. Baste with sauce at this point.
  • Continue cooking chicken until the internal temperature is 170 degree F. This should take about 15 minutes longer. During the last 15 minutes baste and turn chicken frequently.
  • If your legs or wings are done before your breasts and thighs simply put them on the top rack of the grill or pull them off and cover with foil.
