Stuffed WOW Chicken
Did you know that all chickens are not created equally? Yup, there are the regular chickens, of course. Then there are the WOW! chickens. What might be the difference, you ask? Simply put, the WOW comes in the preperation. Smoky shows you how to make a WOW chicken for that very special occasion!
Thaw the chicken (2 1/2 - 3 lb.) and rub it inside and out with the following mixture:
1 Tbs. salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/4 tsp. ground bay
1/4 tsp. ground thyme
1/4 tsp. rubbed sage
1/4 tsp. fresh ground black pepper
Stuff the inside lightly with:
1 small onion
1 small apple
1 stalk celery & leaves, coarsely chopped
Place on a rack over a shallow pan and put in the grill, preheated to 350 degrees. Add 1/4" water to the pan so that the first juices to hit won't burn. The bird should be golden brown and 160 degrees in the thickest part of the thigh in 45-55 minutes. Take out and let it sit for 10 minutes before carving. Try not to grab all the delicious, crispy skin for yourself.
