How long does it take to grill a whole chicken?
The exact time depends on the size of your chicken. Whole chicken needs to be grilled for 15-20 minutes per pound. Make sure you read the weight on the label before throwing the packaging away so you can perfectly calculate the grilling time.
Prepping a gas grill vs a charcoal grill
