Whole Roast Chicken Recipe
|Roast Chicken on The BBQ|
Besides that, it tastes so good and it is easy.
While it cooks you can sit and sip on some wine while taking in the wonderful aromas from the BBQ.
I know you just can't wait to get started so I will not hold you back...
Here are the ingredients:
- One Whole Chicken. Free range, organic or what ever you prefer.
- 4-5 tbs of my Meat Rub #1
That's it. So here is what you do. Take the chicken out of the fridge and if it is not tied up with butcher twine, wrap a few loops around it. Just so it keeps together better once cooked.
Rub the chicken with my favourite Meat Rub #1 and make sure to completely cover it. Then return to the fridge for 1-2 hours.
Heat up your BBQ, pour yourself a glass of wine and make a nice tray from tinfoil. The chicken will cook on the tray and the tray will prevent a flare-up. You can, of course, buy a ready made tray if you wish.

Spray the inside of the tray with some Canola Oil and set the chicken on the tray. Watch the chicken closely till you get the right temperature. Around 300°F is just right. On a small RV or Boat BBQ that will be the low setting more than likely.

If you do not have a manual valve on your gas line I would suggest installing one. This is very handy to cut down the flow of gas to your BBQ if the low setting is still too high.

If you have a personal size aluminum pizza plate. Put that under the tin foil to help with heat distribution. Not needed to go and buy one, only if you have one.
|Probably The Best Chicken Ever|
Turn he chicken about every 20 minutes using a large set of tongs.
Once cooked, remove the chicken from the BBQ and wrap in tin foil for about 10 -15 minutes.
Then serve with some coleslaw, rice or whatever you prefer.
