Well I decided to cook a chook this weekend. I actually prepared the marinade on Saturday and kept it in the fridge overnight. I also wanted to use the rotisserie to see if it made a difference. Anwyay results and recipe (easy) below.
2 Tbps Lemon juice
2 Tbps Soy sauce
Rind of 1 lemon
3 garlic cloves
Pepper and Salt
Mix all the ingredient together and place in plastic bag, butterlfy the chicken cut in half and add to bag; Marinate overnight;
Prepare BBQ for a high temp cook I had the temp around the 450F mark throughout this cook.
I cooked it for about 35-40 minutes (had to remove the corn a bit earlier). I notice that 1 side of the BBQ was cooking at slightly higher temps than the other…hmmm
All in all an easy cook with a good result. Lessons learned from this cook is not to rottiserie butterflied chicken unless 100% sure the temps are equal in the BBQ (must be have been too much charcoal on one side). Anyway the chicken was tender and the skin was good.
