Grilling over low heat then quick-searing ensures perfectly cooked chicken that’s juicy on the inside and crisp on the outside. Brush the chicken with a tangy homemade barbecue sauce that features the iconic taste of OLD BAY Seasoning.



2 tablespoons Old Bay Seasoning

1 cup ketchup

1/4 cup cider vinegar

1 tablespoon molasses honey or packed brown sugar

3 pounds bone-in chicken parts

1 tablespoon oil

1 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning



1. Mix 2 tablespoons of the OLD BAY ketchup vinegar and molasses in medium bowl until blended. Set aside. Brush chicken with oil. Sprinkle with remaining 1 teaspoon OLD BAY.

2. Prepare grill for indirect medium-low heat (275°F to 300°F). Preheat grill by turning all burners to medium. Turn off burner(s) on one side. Place chicken on unlit side of grill. Close grill.

3. Grill 40 to 45 minutes or until internal temperature of thickest part of chicken is 165ºF turning occasionally. Move chicken to lit side of grill. Brush with barbecue sauce. Turn lit side of grill to high.

4. Grill uncovered 3 to 5 minutes longer or until chicken is charred turning once and brushing with additional sauce.



Note: To maintain medium-low heat (275°F to 300°F), keep lid closed and adjust lit burner as necessary. Directions were developed using a gas grill. Grills vary; cooking time is approximate.
