Recipe from: 17 February 2012
Preparation time: 10 min
Cooking time: 1h 20 min
 
 

Ingredients

 
  • 1
    whole chicken- at room temperature
  • 1
    handful of rosemary and thyme
  • lots of salt, pepper and olive oil
  • 1/2
    can
    decanted white wine (or beer)
Servings: Change Serving
 
 

Method

 
Rub chicken with olive oil, herbs, salt and pepper, lemon zest and juice

Place the can into the cavity of the chicken.Put drip tray at the bottom of the weber between the coals dividers.

Place your chicken on the grill and close the lid – ENSURE bottom and top “vents” are open – if closed it will smother the coals.

Set timer for 1 hour and 20 minutes

DO NOT OPEN LID

After 80 minutes remove chicken from weber and allow to rest for a few minutes before carving. Use the chicken fat that falls onto the drip tray to make a gravy if you have the time.

Tip of the day

 
Softening pears
Some pears come to market rock hard, but if left at room temperature they will soften. Tucking them into a sealed paper bag with a banana speeds the process.
