If you want to go with the same flavors and basic method but prefer chicken pieces, go forth! Use skin-on, bone-in breasts and legs—total cooking time will be shorter. This recipe is from B’s Cracklin’ BBQ in Savannah, GA.


  • 1 3½–4-lb. chicken, cut in half
  • 2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper, divided
  • Vegetable oil (for grill)

Recipe Preparation

  • Sprinkle chicken all over with salt and 1½ tsp. pepper. Let sit at room temperature 1 hour.

  • Meanwhile, prepare a grill for medium heat and brush grate with oil. Thinly slice lemon half into rounds. Heat butter and honey in a small saucepan until butter is melted and foaming, then remove from heat and add lemon slices.

  • Grill chicken, skin side down, until skin is lightly charred and releases from grate without tearing, about 6 minutes. Turn chicken over and lightly brush with lemon butter. Cover grill and continue grilling chicken, brushing with lemon butter every 5 minutes or so, until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of breast registers 150°, 25–28 minutes.

  • Just before chicken is ready, cut remaining lemon into quarters and grill, cut side down, until charred and softened, 6–8 minutes. Transfer chicken and lemons to a cutting board; let rest 10 minutes before carving chicken into pieces.

  • To serve, squeeze grilled lemons over chicken and sprinkle with remaining ½ tsp. pepper.
