Smoke Roasted Chicken


1) 1 Whole chicken

2) 1/8 cup kosher salt

3) fresh cracked black pepper

4) garlic powder

5) 2 tablespoon of vegetable oil


Preheat gas grill to 500 degrees add 2-4 smoker pucks to a smoke box or directly to grill, once pucks are smoking put them on a cold part of the grill. Coat the inside of the chicken with the kosher salt (reserve some for seasoning), slather the out side of the chicken with the oil, season the chicken with remaining ingredients. Sear the breast side of the chicken for 5 minutes, then sear the back side of the chicken for 5 minutes. Once the chicken has been seared turn one side of the grill off. You need to have a cold side and a hot side on your grill, this is known as a "2 zone fire". The cold side will be a perfect place for your pucks (which should be smoking by now.) Place your seared chicken on the cold side of your grill with your smokey pucks, close the lid and adjust the temperature, if you have to, to 500 degrees. Allow to cook for 1 hour or until you can pull a leg off with almost no effort.
