Spray the slow cooker with cooking spray. Place the chicken pieces into the slow cooker.
In a small bowl, mix together the brown sugar, paprika, salt, garlic powder, onion powder, and black pepper. Sprinkle the seasoning over the chicken and toss to combine. Once the chicken is fully coated, place the lid on the slow cooker and cook for 4-6 hours on low, or 2-3 hours on high. The chicken is ready when an internal temperature reaches 165°F. I like to keep the chicken cooking for a little longer and pull it around 180°F as I feel the chicken is more tender.
Preheat the broiler to high. Line a sheet tray with foil. Place the chicken pieces on the foil not touching. Brush with the bbq sauce. Broil until lightly golden and caramelized and bubbly, keep watching this will only take a few minutes. Turn the pieces over, brush with more bbq sauce. Broil again. Repeat one more time until the chicken is caramelized and sticky. The amount of sauce you use depends on your personal preference how saucy you like your chicken.
