Gluten Free Apple-Glazed BBQ Chicken

Once you have one BBQ recipe you have them all right?
I wish there was better way to make the flavor more infused into the chicken instead of just on the surface.  With that being said, this is a different flavored BBQ chicken.  It's mild apple flavor makes this chicken a little sweeter than more.  It's fun because this will work for any chicken pieces: breasts, wings, thighs, whatever you like.  And because of the juice concentrate it has a tendency to burn on the grill so be sure to turn the heat down a touch when cooking.

Gluten Free Apple-Glazed BBQ Chicken

6 oz frozen apple juice concentrate, thawed
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup ketchup
1 T. apple cider vinegar
1 t. dried thyme
1/4 t. Tabasco sauce
3 lbs. chicken (breasts, wings, drumsticks, thighs, whatever you like)
Vegetable oil
Salt and pepper

In a heavy saucepan, combine apple juice concentrate, brown sugar, ketchup, vinegar, thyme, and hot sauce.  Heat until sugar melts completely.  Cool.
In a shallow baking dish or gallon sized baggie place chicken in a single layer.  Pour half of the cooled sauce over chicken, turning to coat both sides.  Cover and marinate for up to 24 hours. 
Prepare grill.  Remove chicken and discard marinade.  Brush each piece with oil.  Season generously with salt and pepper.  Grill until chicken is almost cooked through, turning occasionally.  Brush with reserved marinade.  Continue grilling until chicken is cooked through.
