With the weather as it is I’m sure I’m not the only one lighting the barbecue every day! What’s everyone cooking? Smoked a whole chicken today, was absolutely lovely.
Whole Chicken is a particular favourite of mine - how do you do it?
I'm using charcoal and use the indirect heating method. Am considering going back to gas however

I’ve got a big green egg so it comes with an accessory for indirect heat. A nice spicy rub and a vertical roaster thingy, few wood chunks and it came out lovely. I’d have liked to have brined the chicken but only bought it at lunch time so didn’t have time.
Lerds of fish I reckon.
Salmon cooked on a cedar plank is bloody lovely.

I’ve only the egg a few weeks, before that I’d always spatchcock the chicken and cook indirect for an hour or so, turned out lovely. I’d never been able to control temp over long enough periods to do a whole chicken before.

Done whole chicken on charcoal kettle bbq a few times. Coals on either side, chicken in the middle above a foil tray (optional) and keep the lid and vents closed for about hour and a half. Prep the chicken with a load of butter under the breast skin and some salt/pepper on the skin. Option foil over the top for the 1st 30 mins.

Sounds good that.

Aye, always done it myself. Decent pair of scissors and it only takes 2 minutes. The crunching noise doesn’t bother me but I can see why some people wouldn’t like it.
