Step 1
Prepare the Barbecue Sweet Rub. In a small bowl, whisk together Dark Brown Sugar (1/4 cup) , Coarse Sea Salt (1 Tbsp) , Cracked Black Pepper (1/2 Tbsp) , Smoked Paprika (1/2 Tbsp) , Garlic Powder (1/2 Tbsp) , Onion Powder (1/2 Tbsp) , Dry Mustard (1 tsp) , and Cayenne Pepper (1/2 tsp) until evenly blended. You can use a fork or the back of a spoon to break up any large brown sugar chunks.
Step 2
Prepare Honey Barbecue Sauce by combining Ketchup (1 cup) , Brown Sugar (1/2 cup) , Apple Cider Vinegar (1/4 cup) , Honey (1/4 cup) , Worcestershire Sauce (2 Tbsp) , Molasses (1 Tbsp) , Salt (1 tsp) , Smoked Paprika (1 tsp) , Garlic Powder (1 tsp) , Onion Powder (1 tsp) , and Cracked Black Pepper (1/2 tsp) in a medium heavy saucepan and bring to a light boil.
Step 3
Reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes. Remove sauce from the stove and allow to cool to room temperature.
Step 4
Drizzle the Tyson® Chicken Breasts (4) with Olive Oil (2 Tbsp) and rub to evenly distribute. Sprinkle with 4 Tbsp of Barbecue Sweet Rub evenly on all sides. Place on a plate or pan, cover, and refrigerate for 10 minutes.
Step 5
Fire up your pellet grill and preheat the smoker to 225 degrees F (105 degrees C) using your favorite hardwood pellets.
Step 6
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).
Step 7
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).
Step 8
Turn chicken and brush again with Honey Barbecue Sauce. Continue smoking until the chicken reaches 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).
Step 9
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).
Step 10
Serve immediately and get ready to enjoy the best-barbecued chicken of your life!
