It’s that time of year again, grilling season! There is no better appliance for grilling then the Big Green Egg. There is nothing that I enjoy more than a delicious chicken fresh off the grill. It’s simple and effortless to prepare. All you will need the following ingredients:

  • Whole Chicken
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove diced
  • 3 tbsp thyme
  • 3 tbsp rosemary
  • salt
  • pepper
  • Apple wood chunks (about 1 cup)
  • 1 cup of chicken broth
  • 1 cup of water

First you will place the charcoal in the grill and start the fire. The ideal temperature is at 300 degree Fahrenheit. Then soak the wood chunks in water for about 15-20 minutes. I prefer apple wood chunks but any flavor will work. In a small bowl to the side dice the garlic clove, thyme, and rosemary and mix them together. Next you want to rinse your chicken and pour the olive oil over the chicken. Season the outside of the chicken with salt and pepper while stuffing the inside of the chicken with some thyme and rosemary. Take the mixture of the garlic clove, thyme, and rosemary apply it evenly over the top of the chicken. After you prepare the chicken it is ready to be placed on your Big Green Egg. Make sure that you positon the plate setting and drip pan under the chicken! In the drip pan pour in the chicken broth and water.  Cook on your Big Green Egg for about 2.5-3 hours or until the internal temperature is 165 degrees Fahrenheit. Now for my favor part when you get to bite into a juicy, delicious, smoke flavored chicken.
