  1. Fill your grill with FOGO Premium Charcoal and prepare it for indirect cooking at 350°.
  2. Remove all of the “extras” from the cavity of the chicken (giblets, neck…) and pat the chicken dry, inside, and out.
  3. Coat the chicken with Duck Fat Spray and give the entire bird a good coating of the rub of your choice. I used Salamida’s Lemon Pepper seasoning.
  4. Insert a thermometer into the thickest part of the breast to monitor the temperature during the cook. I recommend the Meater+ wireless thermometer.
  5. Cook the chicken until the thermometer reads an internal temperature of 160° and remove the bird from the grill. Loosely tent it with foil and allow it to rest for 10-15 minutes.
  6. Carve the chicken and serve. Hopefully, your family will react the same way mine did….” This may be the best chicken I’ve ever had”!
