Here’s an extremely simple way to cook a whole chicken on the grill – and it’s really delicious and juicy (we know because we ate two of these chickens after the filming was done.)
To pull this off, you’ll need a Weber BBQ, a brick and some foil. You can watch the short instructional video above or simply follow these steps.
- Cut out its spine.
- Break the sternum with the palm of your hand.
- Wrap a brick on tin foil.
- Place the chicken on the grill (with the coals at full blast), and the brick on top of the chicken.
- Leave it for about an hour (it depends on the chicken’s size) until golden. Note: Don’t flip the chicken. The brick will get so hot that it will cook the other side.
Extra bonus points: use this trick if you don’t have that much time).
