Rotisserie Chicken

Winner, winner, chicken dinner!  I know I say this every time I have a chicken recipe, but this time I really mean it!  Rotisserie chicken is my favorite.  As a child, this dish was a staple in my household.  It was alway store bought, but tasted homemade.  This time, I got to make it for my family using the new Big Green Egg Rotisserie kit.  I can guarantee that Rotisserie chicken will be a frequent dinner option in my household moving forward.

Prepare the chicken.

Rotisserie Chicken Ingredients

The tricky part is trussing it.  I’m not going to lie, it took me a few tries the first time around.

First, measure and cut butchers twine 5x the length of the chicken.

Next, wrap the twine under the chicken  and over the drumsticks.  Flip it over and go around the wings. Tie it tightly together and cut off any access twine.  I included my IG video below for visual instructions.

Once the chicken is trussed, it’s time to give it some flavor.  I kept the seasoning simple, used Hardcore Carnivore Red as my choice of BBQ rub.  First, coat it with some olive oil as the binder and cover the entire chicken with your choice of rub and make sure to season all the crevasses, even inside the cavity.

It’s time to fire up the grill!

Preheat the grill to 350 degrees for direct heat. Once the kit is set up, latch the chicken onto the rotisserie skewers and set it on the grill.

Once the rotation begins, close the lid and let it cook for 45 minutes – 1 hour or until the internal temp of the rotisserie chicken reaches 165 degrees.

Remove it from the skewers and let it rest for 10 minutes before carving. Enjoy!
