How to Make Barbeque Chicken on the Grill

  • Pre-heat the grill for indirect heat. If you have a 3 or 4 burner set up, leave the middle burner(s) off and light the others to high.
  • While the grill is heating up, rub the chicken breasts with some Kosher salt and black pepper.
  • Keep aside to marinate for 30 minutes.
  • If using a smoke pouch, go ahead and prepare the pouch and place it on the grill.
  • Once the grill is heated (if using a smoke pouch, wait until the smoke starts to appear), place the chicken breasts on the grill with the bones facing down. Close the grill.
  • After about 35 minutes, open the lid and brush your favourite barbeque sauce on to the top of the chicken.
  • Close the lid and cook for another 10 minutes or so. (Make sure you check your chicken after about 5 minutes. Barbecue sauce has a lot of sugar and sugar burns, so you need to be careful not to burn the sauce at this point.)
  • 10 minutes should be plenty of time to heat up that delicious barbeque and form a little bit of a glaze on the chicken.
