  • Z Grills Pellet Smoker
  • Z Grills Fruit Wood Pellets


  • 4 pound  whole chicken
  • cup  peach juice
  • 1/4  cup  whiskey
  • 1/4  cup  melted butter
  • 1/4  cup  Hey Grill Hey’s Sweet BBQ Rub 
  • 1/2  cup  Whiskey Peach BBQ sauce


  • Preheat your smoker to 225 degrees F using a mild fruit wood like a peach.
  • Remove any giblets or neck from inside of the chicken and pat dry.
  • In a jar, combine the peach juice, whiskey, and melted butter. Inject this mixture into your chicken in several spots. Be sure to inject in at least 3 different places in each breast, 2 places in the thighs, and 1 time in each leg.
  • Season your chicken generously on all sides with the Sweet BBQ Rub. Place in the middle of your grill and close the lid. Smoke for 45 minutes per pound of chicken.
  • Brush liberally with the whiskey peach BBQ sauce once the internal temperature of your meat reaches 150 degrees.
  • Check the temperature in both the thighs and the breasts and when your internal temperature reads consistently 160 degrees F, remove the chicken to a rimmed serving platter or baking sheet and cover tightly with foil to allow the chicken to come up to 165 degrees F and rest for 20 minutes.
  • Shred the chicken and set it onto your serving platter. Discard the carcass or save for homemade stock. Drizzle your smoked pulled chicken with more of the Whiskey Peach Barbecue Sauce and serve on toasted buns.
