Q Is it ok to boil chicken to half cook before BBQ-ing it?
I'm really having a hard time grilling chicken. Burnt skin outside, bloody raw inside.. I tried it a few times to almost ruining the chicken. What I'm thinking is, to boil it to half cook, then grill just to finalize the dish. Any suggestion guys?

You're bbqing it at too high a temperature. Boiling the chicken first will get you an odd texture (especially on the skin) if you then grill the meat. If you must, bake it partway done and then put on the grill. But, seriously, just use a lower heat (less charcoal, burned down to white) and put the grill grate higher over the coals, and you'll be fine.

Turn the heat down on the grill. Start the chicken out slowly so the inside cooks before the outside is burnt. Also do not put BBQ sauce on the chicken until the last 5 to 10 minutes. BBQ sauce has a lot of sugar and that will burn. Remove large pockets of fat before putting the chicken on the grill. Fat melting will cause flare ups that can burn the chicken.

If it is burned outside and raw inside, your flame is too hot. Raise the grate higher, or turn down the flames, or use less charcoal. You need to cook it slower and lower. Boiling it first is a horrible solution.
