Beer & Honey-Glazed Chicken Quarters

August 31, 2018

Today's recipe is for Pit Barrel Cooker Chicken Quarters with Beer BBQ Sauce. 

Beer & Honey Glazed Chicken Quarters

We'll start this chicken off with a mayonnaise binder that adds moisture and color. The seasoning is Maple Pecan and then we'll finish with a Budweiser BBQ sauce and honey glaze.


Recipe Instructions

  1. Apply a thin layer of mayonnaise to both sides of the chicken quarters.
  2. Sprinkle the chicken with the onion powder and pecan rub.
  3. Heat the Pit Barrel Cooker to 300 to 350 degrees and add some cherry wood.
  4. Place the chicken on the Pit Barrel Cooker and cook until the internal temp is 170 to 172 degrees.
  5. While the chicken is cooking add the BBQ sauce to a pan over medium high heat and stir in the beer. Boil for 5 to 7 minutes, then turn off the heat and add the honey.
  6. When the chicken temp is 170 to 172 degrees, apply a layer of the BBQ sauce glaze to the chicken. Cook for 6 minutes, turn the chicken over, glaze again and cook for another 6 minutes.
  7. Remove the chicken from the cooker when the internal temp is 175 degrees. Total cook time today was one hour.
  8. Let rest for 10 minutes and serve!
