KC Masterpiece Southern Style BBQ Chicken

KC-Masterpiece-BBQ-Chicken2 I recently received a bottle of KC Masterpiece Southern Style BBQ Sauce through the FoodBuzz Tastemaker program with KC Masterpiece. I've been a fan of KC Masterpiece for as long as I've been cooking and was eager to try their new sauce.

The KC Masterpiece Southern Style BBQ Sauce is thin-bodied with slightly tangy notes of cider vinegar and a bit of heat from red and black pepper.

I wanted to create a sweet and tangy flavor, so I whipped up a wet rub consisting of dark brown sugar, fresh garlic, onion powder, Beau Monde seasoning, and a splash of BBQ sauce, then brushed the chicken in BBQ sauce during the final minutes of grilling.

The brown sugar rub can be tricky to cook with as it creates a caramel-coating that is sticky and can burn easily on the grill. For this reason, I cooked the chicken on low heat to minimize the black crunch. The end result was a sweet and tangy chicken with just a hint of spicy notes at the back of the throat.

I served the KC Masterpiece Southern Style BBQ Chicken with sides of baked beans, baked garlic cheddar mashed muffins, and yeast dinner rolls. I used a whole cut-up chicken and turned the leftovers into a BBQ chicken salad.

My husband and I absolutely loved the new KC Masterpiece sauce. It's thinner than most of the bottled sauces I've used in the past, which I really liked because it didn't overpower the flavor of the meal. I can't wait to try it on pulled pork, ribs, and my slow-roasted beef brisket.
