Kamado Grill Roasted Chicken



TIP
 - let the bird settle for 30 minutes after cooking to let the juices set. I tucked into mine a little too early and the juices ran everywhere – but I caught most in the gravy pot!

Preparation Time:- 10 minutes
Cooking Time:- 90 minutes for an average sized chicken
Resting Time:- 30 minutes 

Total Time:- 2 hours 10 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 Free Range Chicken
  • 1 onion (quartered but not peeled)
  • 1 lemon (quartered)
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt

Instruction:

Rub the chicken with olive oil and then sprinkle liberally with the salt (this will help crisp up the skin). Stuff the chicken with the quarters of onion and lemon - this will add flavor and steam the inside of the bird while it is roasting.

Place the chicken in your kamado on the indirect setting and roast at 180°C or 350°F for the normal cooking time (20 minutes per pound + 20 minutes).

If your kamado cooking temperature starts to die, don’t worry it’ll still cook through provided the drop in temp is not too dramatic (mine dropped to 140°C), just make sure you check your chicken is cooked either by pricking the thigh with a skewer and checking that the juices run clear or using an instant read bbq thermometer. The chicken breast should be up to 165°F and look for 180°F in the thigh (close to the bone).
