  • Prepare your grill for 225 degrees F. Add your preferred wood.
  • Blot chicken breasts dry with paper towels. Brush both sides of the chicken with oil or mustard—season liberally with rub.
  • Place seasoned chicken onto the grill grates, and set a drip pan underneath grates (optional). Close the lid, and cook the chicken for 1 1/2 to 2 hours, or until they register an internal temperature of 165 degrees F, in the thickest part of the meat.
  • Once cooked, remove chicken breasts, and place them onto a clean cutting board. Tent with aluminum foil and let them rest for 10 minutes. Slice and serve.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days. Or freeze them in vacuum-sealed bags for up to 3 months.
