Everyday Food, July/August 2008
Prep Time 5 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes
Vegetable oil, for grates
2 tablespoons paprika
2 tablespoons chili powder
Coarse salt and ground pepper
1 chicken (about 3 pounds), cut into 10 pieces
2 cups Simple Barbecue Sauce
1. Heat a grill to medium; lightly oil grates. In a small bowl, combine paprika, chili powder, 2 teaspoons salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper; sprinkle spice rub all over chicken. Reserve 1 cup barbecue sauce in a bowl for serving; keep remaining sauce in another bowl for basting.
2. Grill chicken, turning often, until cooked through, 15 to 20 minutes (if browning too quickly, move to cooler part of grill). During final 5 minutes of cooking, baste chicken with barbecue sauce. Serve chicken with reserved sauce.
To set up a grill with different levels of heat, place two-thirds of the hot coals on one side and one third on the other (the cooler part). For a gas grill, lower heat on one side.
