Instructions Checklist
  • 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.
