Pull up a chair; it’s Classic BBQ Chicken night! There are many fancy chicken recipes out there, and I even have a few myself. But sometimes, you just want good ol’ fashioned BBQ. This chicken is my take on a tried and true recipe.
Juicy chicken is rubbed down with my heavenly seasonings, then cooked to perfection on the Traeger Timberline 1300. You have a winning combination when topped with two of my best-selling sauces! This is a wonderful recipe to serve at family cookouts, gamedays, or when you want a weeknight dinner straight off the pit.
