BBQ Perfectly Moist Chicken Under A Brick

Say goodbye to chicken on your BBQ that’s part underdone and part over-charred. By resting a foil-wrapped brick on the chicken halves, you’ll flatten them out to cook more evenly and achieve moist chicken perfection.

Men’s Health posts this tip from BBQ master Chris Lilly (no, not the Summer Heights High dude) about turning a brick into an unusual BBQ tool. Basically, you need to wrap bricks in two sheets of heavy-duty foil, then preheat the BBQ to medium-low:

Place the chicken halves on the grill, skin side down. Place a brick over each half, cover the grill, and cook until their internal temperature reaches 165F (75C) — around 40 to 45 minutes, turning and basting them halfway through.
