Grilled Whole Chicken

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

Preheat the gas grill to medium-high heat. With the charcoal grill, light a chimney full of charcoal. When the coal is ready, pour it over one-half of the grill. Cover it and let it heat

Make a spice rub

Whisk the ingredients for the spice rub in a bowl until well combined. Set it aside.

Add the spice rub

Pat the chicken dry. Evenly coat the chicken with spices. Don’t forget the inside cavity!

Grill the chicken

Place the chicken on a vertical roaster, with the legs at the bottom. Cook based on grill used.

Serve and enjoy!

Remove it from the grill and let it rest. Slice, serve, and enjoy!
