Fire up your pellet grill and preheat the smoker to 225 degrees F (105 degrees C) using your favorite hardwood pellets.
Place seasoned chicken directly on smoker grill and smoke for approximately 1 hour, or until the internal temperature of the thickest part of the chicken reaches 150 degrees F (65 degrees C).
When the chicken reaches 150 degrees F (65 degrees C), turn and brush with Honey Barbecue Sauce. Shut the lid and continue smoking until the internal temp reaches 155 degrees F (68 degrees C).
Turn chicken and brush again with Honey Barbecue Sauce. Continue smoking until the chicken reaches 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).
Remove chicken from the smoker and place on a clean plate or pan; brush Honey Barbecue Sauce over chicken pieces and immediately cover loosely with foil. Allow to rest for 5-10 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches a food-safe 165 degrees F (75 degrees C).
Serve immediately and get ready to enjoy the best-barbecued chicken of your life!
