Are you using a BBQ? Oven? or Pellet Grill? Follow my instructions below -

Charcoal or Gas BBQ
Preheat grill and prepare for indirect cooking.
Cook indirectly for 65-75 minutes with the lid on.

Indoor Oven
Preheat oven and set to 180c or 160c for fan forced.
Cook for 60-70 minutes.

Traeger Grill
Always start with the Traeger at 'smoke' with lid open, for around 5 minutes or until the fire starts. Then set the temperature to 375f (190c).
Place the whole chicken directly on the grill and cook with the lid closed.

TIPS
  • Remove chicken from any of the heat sources you use once the internal temperature reaches 165f (75c).
  • I use a chimney full of lit charcoal on one side of the BBQ and place my chicken opposite to it (indirect cooking).
  • You can use a tray filled with water under the chicken to keep the chicken moist as it cooks if using a charcoal BBQ.
