Smoked Chicken and Rub Recipe
This is a sponsored post. I received the product mentioned in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are honest and my own.
I decided that for this recipe, I would use the rub I’d made for my chicken, and then smoke the chicken on the grill using the wood I received from https://whiskeybarrelsmoke.com/ to try. For this recipe, we decided to use the Bourbon Barrel Temptress wood.
All the wood from Whiskey Barrel Smoke comes from barrels used by breweries to age their product. Its a cool concept, and I like that its a way to continue to use up the barrels besides destroying them.
We enjoyed the smoke, which did have a slightly different flavor from regular oak smoking chips. If you’re interested in something a little different, I’d recommend it!
The chicken rub is really simple, and you probably already have all the ingredients. Just measure them into a cup or bowl, stir it together, and then rub all over the chicken!
You could let this marinate if you wanted, though I didn’t. Pure laziness on my part, if I’m honest. We stuck a can of coke in the chicken (you could use beer – we just didn’t have any), and then got it on the grill.
If you have one of those chicken beer can holders, I’d highly recommend it. We balanced the chicken on the can, but it was awkward and it fell down at least once.
In any case, smoke the chicken until a thermometer reads 165 degrees, and then pull it from the grill and let it rest about 10 minutes. Then eat and enjoy!
Its a really simple recipe, and you could use the rub for chicken breasts, or even pork.
