Marinate the chicken legs or (chicken thighs, chicken breasts on the bone or split whole chicken breast) in shaoxing (rice wine), tamari (soy) sauce, orange zest, ginger and garlic overnight or at least for 1 hour to allow the the flavours to penetrate.
Create the Tea and Herb Smoking Packet: Double layer your aluminium foil (about a 18 inches or 46 cm) on a flat surface and lay the following ingredients onto the center of the aluminium foil...oolong teas (set aside ½ cup for later) , rice, brown sugar (set aside ¼ cup for later), oranges peels, star anise and cinnamon. Fold in the 2 sides and leave a small vent at the top of the packet to allow the smoke to escape.
Place the tea and herb packet under the grill plates on the side of the grill that gets hottest and turn on medium heat and wait until the tea and herb packet to get hot and start smoking well. (about 10 minutes)
In the mean time, remove the chicken from the marinade. Dry the chicken well with a paper towels (this helps make the chicken crispy on the grill). Rub the chicken with olive oil all over and season with salt and Szechuan peppercorns (ground).
Place the prepared chicken on the grill. I put the chicken on one side of the grill that had more gentle heat and had the tea and herb packet on the side of the grill with stronger heat. Grill and smoke chicken, depending on size for about 30 to 45 minutes on medium heat. (About 20 minutes into the grilling/smoking of the chicken you will need to spoon the ½ cup reserved oolong tea and ¼ cup of brown sugar carefully into the opening of the tea and herb packet on the grill as the when the tea burns off it stopes smoking)
Make the Ginger Honey Soy Glaze: On the stove top in a small pan heat up the honey (or dietetic orange marmalade if diabetic), ginger, tamari (soy) sauce and sesame oil just until slightly thick (about 3-4 minutes). Remove from heat.
In the last 5-10 minutes of the grilling/smoking of the chicken, brush on the sticky honey ginger soy glaze.
