Island Smoked Chicken

  • 1 chicken (cut into parts)


  • 1 (6-ounce) can limeade
  • 1/4 cup peanut oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced onion
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon tarragon
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • 2 tablespoons Alder Wood Chips
  • Rinse chicken parts and pat dry. Mix remaining ingredients and marinate the chicken overnight in a large bowl. Remove chicken and pour 1/4 of the marinade into the drip tray. Smoke with alder chips on medium heat for 25 minutes per pound; remove lid and crisp under broiler for 5 minutes. For summer entertaining, smoke chicken in advance then crisp over the grill, brushing on a little marinade. Leaves plenty of time to enjoy a little island punch with your company.

    Serves 6.
