BBQ chicken from smoker? To sauce or not to sauce
Fri, 08/20/10 12:10 PM
We've got a concession trailer and sell pulled pork, hot dogs, chicken strips etc. I want to offer BBQ chicken as well, but had a question. I'm using a cookshack smoker for my pork, and have smoked chicken on occasion for family, but always with nothing but a rub. If I'm wanting to offer a "BBQ" chicken, should I add sauce to the chicken before smoking? I know that grilling it would burn the sauce, but I've not tried coating the chicken with sauce before smoking. Any suggestions? We'd smoke the chicken, then hold hot in a Cambro in the trailer.
