Honey Garlic Smoked Chicken

I wanted to combine two of my favorite ingredients to make a dinner that you will not forget. I used my rub recipe for the chicken and topped it off with some honey garlic for a glaze. The garlic, corn, and peppers make for some great side options as well. If you want my recipe for my garlic or corn I have them posted as well. I cooked this meal on my Bradley Smoker P10 to achieve that smoky flavor.


Rub Recipe

  • 1 tsp red pepper
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp. granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp. brown sugar
  • Mix these ingredients together using a coffee grinder. Tip: I used an empty spice container when applying the rub.

Honey Garlic Glaze

  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 tbsp. rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • Heat together in a saucepan for about 3-5 minutes on medium heat.

Smoke Time: 1 hours
Cook Time: 2 Hours
Temp Setting: 226 degrees F
Bisquettes Flavor: Mesquite
Chicken Completed Temp: 165 degrees F.


  1. Preheat your Bradley Smoker to the settings listed above.
  2. Use the rub listed above to coat the chicken breast thoroughly on each side.
  3.  Place in the smoker for 60 minutes.
  4. Remove the chicken breast from the smoker after 60 minutes.
  5. Using the Honey Garlic Glaze, baste each chicken breast on each side. Wrap each chicken breast in foil and 2 tbsp. of apple juice (Ensure the apple juice does not leak out).
  6. Place back into the smoker and cook until the chicken reaches 165 degrees F.

In the picture below I am using my ThermoWorks Mk4 Thermapen to check the internal temperature of the chicken. If you haven’t checked out the Thermapen click the link below.
