How to Make It

Step 1    

In a small bowl, whisk together all of the ingredients except the chicken, barbecue sauce and pickles. Rub the chicken all over with the spice mix.

Step 2    

Set up a grill for direct and indirect cooking, then light the grill and oil the grate. Grill the chicken over moderately high heat, turning occasionally, until lightly charred all over, 
8 to 10 minutes.

Step 3    

Move the chicken to indirect heat. Brush all over with the barbecue sauce. Cover and cook at 425°, basting and turning occasionally, until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part registers 165°, about 20 minutes. Transfer to a platter and serve with bread-and-butter pickles and the remaining barbecue sauce.
