  • 1 1/2 tsp pepper

1. Rub chicken ”“ Combine brown sugar, chili powder, paprika, pepper, dry mustard, onion powder, salt and cayenne in small bowl. Transfer half of dry rub to shallow dish; reserve. Pat chicken dry with paper towels and coat over and under skin with remaining rub. Transfer to plate and place in refrigerator, covered, for one hour.

2. Grill chicken ”“ Grill chicken (skin side down) until skin is well browned and crisp (15-20 min)

3. Dredge chicken ”“ Lightly coat skin side of chicken with reserved rub and return to grill, skin side up. Continue to grill, covered, for 15-20 min (until rub has melted into a glaze)

I have to say, this was the juiciest, most flavorful barbequed chicken I have ever eaten. We will definitely be making this one again and again.
