Grilled BBQ Chicken

I love to grill in the summertime no doubt about that. Being from the south chicken is a classic BBQ item. Here is a recipe that can be altered to taste, it is tangy but sweet yet jazzed up with a little bit of spice. Using your favorite BBQ sauce you can make this a hit at your next family get together.
