Hey Barbecue buddies,

I'm thinking of grilling a spit-roasted chicken tomorrow for the family (texas style), but I can't find a good recipe. I don't think I would like the "ASIAN sesame five-spice rotisserie chicken" (HTG) or the "HAWAIIAN honey lime huli huli chicken" (BBQ USA). I don't have the Barbequebible book, maybe there is a good recipe in there?? Any suggestions??

You can’t go wrong with lemon juice, garlic and olive oil. Maybe add some fresh herbs to the mixture such as oregano, thyme or rosemary. Season the chicken with salt, black pepper, lemon pepper, and granulated onion powder. I like to add allspice to my rub, but if you don’t like the flavor, then omit it. You can also use a fajita spice mix for a rub. Brush the chicken with liquid mixture through out the cooking time and you’ll have a perfect chicken. If you have an injector, inject the chicken with a mixture of garlic juice, lemon juice and olive oil. If you want it a little spicy, brush it with hot wing sauce towards the end (wing sauces burn fast).
I hope this helps.

If you have never tried Five Spice powder I would highly reccomend it. After cooking it ends up being almost like a sweetener. I' never tried the Sesame 5 Spice Chicken, but it looks like it would taste wonderful, some wonerful sweetness from star anise, cinnamon, and cloves of the 5 spice and an over tone of the slightly nutty seame oil.

If it still doesn't float your boat, you can always use the old standby, cheapo Italian Dressing with some granulated onion added and maybe some fresh rosemary thrown in for good measure. I use a big bottle of dressing, marinate the chicken in 3/4 of the mixture and use the last 1/4 to baste with.
