Best BBQ Chicken with homemade sauce!

This recipe has been enjoyed by my family and friends lots of times, and it's great for feeding a crowd. Everyone always asks for the recipe, so here it is...enjoy!

For the Rub
2 T paprika
2 T chili powder
2 t coarse salt
1/2 t fresh ground pepper
1 bone in cut up chicken--about 3 pounds(I use bone in breasts and drumsticks)
2 cups simple homemade BBQ sauce.

Heat grill to medium and lightly oil grates. In a small bowl combine ingredients for the spice rub and sprinkle and rub over all chicken pieces.
Grill chicken, turning about every five minutes until cooked through. (15 to 20 minutes...smaller pieces will cook faster than large breasts.)During final 5 minutes of cooking, baste with BBQ sauce.

Simple BBQ sauce
1 24 oz bottle of ketchup
1 c cider vinegar
1/2 c unsulfured molasses
2 T Worcestershire
1 C water
1 T paprika
1 T onion powder
1 T mustard powder
1 t garlic powder
1/2 t ground black pepper
1/4 to 1/2 t cayenne pepper

Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and let simmer until sauce thickens and reduces by 1/3. About 30 minutes. Let cool before using. Set 1 cup aside to serve with chicken, while the rest will be used for basting. Stores in refridgerator up to 2 weeks.
