  • 1 whole chicken

Chicken BBQ rub

  • 3 tbsp salt
  • 1 tbsp paprika powder
  • 1 tbsp tumeric powder
  • 1 tbsp onion powder
  • ½ tbsp garlic powder
  • ½ tbsp cumin powder
  • ½ tbsp ginger powder

Butter sauce

  • ½ cup fresh parsley chopped fine
  • 3 tbsp Chicken BBQ rub
  • 100 grams butter


Spatchcocked chicken

  • Take your chef's knife and cut along the backbone on either the left or the right side of the chicken. I like to leave the backbone on because the bone gives flavor but you are free to take it out.
  • Then rotate the chicken with the backbone pointing down and spread it out as much as you can,
  • With both hands press as hard as you can and pop the breastbone.


  • CMix all the ingredients of the above mentioned mix togehter in a bowl or a DIY nutella sprinkler with holes in the cap.
  • Season the whole chicken and leave nothing untouched. Hold on to around 3 tbsp of this magic stuff.

Smoker setup

  • Fill up the Burnhard with hickory pellets.
  • Set the temperature to the lowest setting that you have on your smoker. In my case it's the smoker setting which is around 60 degrees celcius.

Smoked chicken

  • Smoke the chicken for an hour and then raise the temperature to 160 degrees celcius.
  • I'm roasting the chicken to around 96 degrees celcius which is the heat that you need to pmake it pulled. This will take you another hour.
  • Take out the chicken and place it on a board. Then pulle the chicken from the inside with a fork. Leave the chicken inside it's carcass.

Butter sauce

  • Take a pan and heat it up with 100 grams of butter and let the butter melt.
  • Chop fine some parsley.
  • Add the parsley to the butter along with 3 tbsp of that leftover chicken rub and stir it.
  • Pour the hot butter sauce on top of the pulled chicken and your roasted pulled chicken is done.
