Tips for Grilling Juicy Chicken

Barrett Black, a seasoned pitmaster at Black’s Barbecue, suggests cutting the entire chicken in half for those using smaller grills. This approach ensures more even cooking by allowing each half of the chicken to receive better heat coverage, which is crucial in smaller grills where space and heat distribution can be limited. 

Separating the skin from the bird can also help when preparing to grill chicken. Once the skin is separated, season with salt, pepper, and other spices in between the skin and meat. Also, season on the outside of the skin lightly.

How to Smoke Chicken to Perfection

When smoking chicken, use a two-zone method: charcoal on one side and wood chips on the other. Cook at 275 degrees for about 2 to 3 hours.
