Servings 4 people
- 1/2 cup BBQ sauce your favorite

Preheat your grill by turning it on as high as it will go for a few minutes.
After it's heated, turn one side off and one side on medium low or low.
Clean the grates and lightly dip a paper towel in oil and brush the grate, holding the paper towel with tongs.
Using a pastry brush, brush one side of the chicken with a light layer of BBQ sauce and place that side down over the heated part of the grill.
Brush the top side with BBQ sauce.
Cook with the lid down until grill marks are just starting to appear, if your grill is the correct temperature this should take about 5 minutes.
Brush top with another light layer of BBQ sauce, flip and brush again.
Continue this process of brushing with BBQ sauce and flipping the chicken about every 5 minutes until the internal temperature reaches 160 degrees F. This will take about 20 minutes.
When the internal temperature is 160 degrees, brush with a final layer of BBQ sauce and turn the grill off.
Let rest for 5 minutes with the lid down on the side of the grill where the heat was off originally. After 5 minutes, the internal temperature should register 165 degrees F.
