For the Chicken:

For the Glaze:


  • Trim meat of excess fat, and pat dry. Apply dry rub all over the chicken pieces and place in a refrigerator overnight or at least 4 hours uncovered to dry brine.
  • Preheat smoker to 275 degrees Fahrenheit (F) using fruit wood like apple or cherry. Oak and Hickory also work well.
  • Place chicken pieces in the smoker until the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 150 degrees F.
  • Dip the chicken pieces into the bowl of glaze and place back onto the smoker. Continue smoking until the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 160 degrees F using a good instant read thermometer.
  • Remove from the smoker and then dip again into your glaze, let it rest for 10 minutes allowing glaze to set.
  • Serve and enjoy.


As always, cooking times will vary. Always cook to proper internal temperature (in this case 16o degrees per piece of chicken). For this recipe we cooked the meat for approximately 90 minutes total.
To Get Crispy Skin - If you want crispy skin, then follow same directions, but smoke at 325 degrees F. It will cook faster. Smoked chicken typically won't achieve the same texture as a grilled piece because the fat does not render out at the lower heat.
Sourcing Chicken - We love shopping local ranchers, and those who source from them. Consider the amazing and rich flavor of D'Artagnan for locally sourced, straight to your door heritage and local chicken.
