Roasted Chicken

Post by Hippieforever99 » Tue Feb 03, 2009 11:33 am

4 tablespoons onion powder
3 tablespoons sugar
3 tablespoons garlic powder
3 teaspoons dried thyme flakes
4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
3 tablespoons ground allspice
1 teaspoons ground nutmeg
3 tablespoons fresh-ground pepper
2 tablespoons hot pepper sauce

Although this is not REAL BBQ it is an easy way to cook a whole chicken on a gas grill! Split a whole 3 pound chicken by cutting up the middle of the breast bone. Press the chicken flat, and rub both sides, plus under the skin around the breast, with the following concoction. Mix the spices thoroughly in a bowl. Light both sides of your gas grill and leave them on high for ten minutes or until hot. Shut off one side of the grill and turn the other side to its lowest setting. Place the chicken, skin side up on the off side of the grill. Close the cover and let it cook for 45 minutes. Raise the cover and turn the chicken 90 degrees and close the cover and finish cooking for another 45 minutes. Test the thigh for doneness with an instant reading meat thermometer. About 180F is ok. Remove the chicken from the grill and let it rest for at least ten minutes before slicing.
