We had never bbq'd a whole chicken before. This was something my husband was dying to try, so off I went to find the perfect little chicken, turns out I found an eight pounder, which is very good for us. My husband took the back bone out, sounds awful really, did not watch the process. He made a dry rub for it and let it sit overnight in the fridge. The flavour was incredible but the biggest delight of all was how juicy it was, which is why we should always buy bone in chicken...I often get lazy and this was the perfect reminder! Totally worth the effort!
