Build a fire (wood or a combination of charcoal and wood) for indirect cooking by stacking the coals on only one side of the grill, leaving the other side empty.
In a small bowl, stir together applesauce
and Worcestershire. Holding chicken over a
9 x 5 x 3-inch loaf pan, pour mixture over
chicken, making sure chicken is thoroughly
coated inside and out. Let excess liquid drip
into loaf pan.
In another small bowl, combine dry rub
ingredients and mix well. Coat entire
chicken, inside and out, with dry rub. Place
chicken into loaf pan, breast side up.
When grill temperature reaches
approximately 300°, place loaf pan on grill
grate away from coals, close the cover and
cook for 2 hours, or until internal
temperature of chicken thigh reaches 175°.
Let chicken cool a bit in pan before cutting
into serving pieces.
