    Looks good and the way you isolated the charcoal to one side guarantees no flare ups!

    All done, was pretty good but not great. Poultry on a grill stumps me. I just cant seem to get it right. In a oven its like turkey easy but on a grill I struggle with it. Anyway here was the finished product...

    Looks great! I struggle cooking chicken on the grill as well and have all but quit doing it. Most of the time mine turns out rubbery so I know what you mean.

    Chicken is inherently dry, like turkey. Rotisserie chicken keeps them moist by spinning the chicken in its own fat and moisture but the finished birds are greasy.

    For some really good chicken try brining. It doesn't take as long as a turkey about 4 hours vs overnight for a turkey but the result is a very moist bird.

    Don't leave it in the brine any longer than recommended. The bird will be moist, tender and not greasy.

    I'm going to give brining a shot, Jim. Thanks for the information!

    Spatchcock style cooks pretty quick. It's fairly easy to overcook it. I over cooked it my first try. The crispy skin with moist meat is great.

    A lot of protein and fiber in those items. Must be healthy, right? That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

    The best whole chicken ever grilled for us was wrapped in foil (no brine or prep) and pushed to the back of a large pit. We actually forgot about it. The juiciest whole chicken I ever had. I have never attempted again. We gas grill breast and thighs with good results regularly on my Genesis.
