First, prepare your BBQ chicken marinade the day before you plan to grill.
Though you can prepare this as a BBQ rotisserie chicken, the results are more flavorful when you cut chicken into pieces.
This recipe for BBQ chicken uses a flavorful marinade that includes brown sugar, honey, pineapple juice, sesame oil, fresh grated ginger and crushed garlic.
When cooking BBQ chicken, consider using a smoker box. For authentic Hawaiian BBQ, use kiawe wood (known in America as mesquite chips).
Once the honey BBQ chicken sauce has soaked into the meat overnight, remove from the refrigerator and cook over high heat, skin side down, turning a couple times. Then, move to the low burner and shut the lid, where it will slowly cook and smoke for about 30 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 165 F. The smaller pieces will cook more quickly than the larger breast pieces.
Serve this with your favorite mac salad, cole slaw and white rice.
