Some like it hot! If you’re bored with boring grilled chicken, try this spicy & smoky BBQ chicken recipe to spice up your life.

Ingredients

  • 4 chicken leg quarters
  • 1 cup jalapeno jelly or red pepper jelly
  • Chili powder
  • 4 chicken leg quarters
  • 1 cup jalapeno jelly or red pepper jelly
  • 1 cup water

Preparation

Combine the jelly and water in a sauce pan and simmer on the stove top for about 10 minutes or until it reaches a medium-thick consistency.

Season the chicken quarters with the Chicken Rub and chili powder. Start the Traeger on Smoke with the lid open until the fire is established (5 to 10 minutes).

Preheat to 300 degrees F, lid closed, for 10 to 15 minutes.

Place the chicken on the grill and cook for 15 minutes, lid closed. Baste the chicken legs with the pepper syrup.

Turn the legs over and baste every 15 minutes for 30 minutes.

Switch the setting to Smoke and smoke for 1 hour.

Switch back to 300 degrees F for the last 15 minutes, or until the chicken reaches 165 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer, to finish the glaze.

Remove and serve while hot. Enjoy!
