Cook the rice
In a medium pot, combine the rice, 1 cup of water (double for 4 portions) and a big pinch of salt; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover and let simmer, 17 to 20 minutes, until the rice is tender and the water is absorbed. Remove from the heat and let sit, covered, for 5 minutes. Fluff the cooked rice with a fork and set aside in a warm spot.

Remove the seeds and finely chop the chipotle in adobo, keeping all the sauce. In a bowl, combine the chipotle and adobo sauce, BBQ sauce, honey, garlic and ½ the lime juice.
