Vivian’s Bacon Wrapped Competition Chicken Recipe
Sweet and smokey, this bacon wrapped smoked chicken recipe is perfect for a bbq competition. As you can see, I’m working towards next years Silicon Valley BBQ Competition since my chicken needed a bit of work.
Now that I know I can use my Traeger, I’m having fun creating new chicken recipes. This is by far my favorite. Will this be the one I use? You try it and let me know if I should.
Bacon Wrapped Competition Chicken
- 1/4 cup Dry Rub for Chicken (See notes for recipe)
- 1/2 cup Garlic Olive Oil
- 1/2 cup Aged Red Wine Vinegar
- 1/2 cup Honey
- 2lb Chicken Pieces (bone in with skin)
Dry Rub For Chicken Recipe
|Combine all ingredients together in a zip log bag and marinade overnight. |
|Preheat the smoker to 325 degrees. |
|While the smoker is preheating, remove chicken from marinade and let drip dry to remove excess liquid. Wrap each piece of chicken with 1/2 to 1 slice of bacon. Smoke wrapped chicken for 30 minutes to 1 hour or until chicken reaches 165 degrees. Time depends on size of chicken pieces. |
