BBQ Honey Chicken

Art Mayoff shares this recipe with us.

 

  • Quarter a chicken, then cut quarters in half.  You’re better off with smaller rather than larger pieces.
  • Remove skin.
  • Place in glass dish.
  • Use about 1/2 to 3/4 cup of any kind of white wine and pour it over the chicken.
  • Then sprinkle about 1 tablespoon of garlic powder onto the chicken and refrigerate for a few hours.
  • Turn the chicken pieces at least once to make sure the garlic and wine marinate reaches all sides.
  • Use Bull’s eye Original BBQ sauce (# 39017 from Costco or Sams club).
  • In a small bowl, combine:
    • 4 to 8 ounces of BBQ sauce,
    • one or two slices of onion, finely chopped,
    • one tablespoon of chopped a green bell pepper,
    • two or three tablespoons of honey and a tablespoon of powdered garlic,
    • and mix.
  • At the barbecue:
    • Barbecue chicken and discard the marinade.  Do not use or brush the marinade onto the chicken.
    • Use medium heat setting on the grill.
    • Turn the chicken every 5-8 minutes cooking for 30 to 40 minutes.
    • Check to make sure its done.
  • When the chicken is done:
    • Place some wood chips or a few small sticks of dry wood onto half of the coals – to create a flame under half of the grilling surface.
    • With a pair of tongs remove each piece of chicken, one at a time and swish it around in the BBQ sauce mixture to coat it fully and put each piece back onto the grill over the flaming wood.
    • Be careful not to burn the chicken.  It only takes one to two minutes, on each side for the BBQ sauce to cook.
    • Make sure all pieces of chicken get flamed on all sides.
    • Move the completed ones off to the side of the grill where there is no flame.
  • After all the chicken is flamed, turn off grill and place chicken into a serving dish.
  • Drip about 1/2 teaspoon (a squirt) of honey onto each piece of chicken.
  • Serve.
