This is my most favorite Steven Raichen recipe...it's intended for chicken wings, but tonight I grilled a whole spatchcock chicken with the marinade and glaze... http://www.primalgrill.org/recipe_detai ... isodeID=37

Last night, I knew I had to do something with this small, all natural, hormone-free chicken. It donned on me that I had ginger....had cilantro....onion....lemon juice....hot sauce....garlic....I was set! So last night, I used the food processor and whipped up the marinade. Then poured it on the chicken, worked the marinade over and under the skin, and marinaded it for about 20 hours or so covered in the fridge.

Set the BGE for a raised, direct cook at around a 375 deg f dome temp.

Let it go until the internal temp of the chicken reached 175 deg in the legs and thighs, and 162 deg in the breasts.

Cut it all up, then glazed it once it was plated. Recipe works just fine on a whole chicken as it does on wings.

Our last coupla whole chickens have been All Natural and Hormone-Free... I think we will buy these from now on. They are much smaller than those chickens at Wally World that are the size of small turkeys. They seem to stay so much more juicy as well. And they taste much better in our opinions...almost "richer" and more "delicate" if that makes sense? I dunno how to explain my brain sometimes. ;) Anywho...this recipe is killer. Highly recommended. :D

Nah, the other ingredients tone down the spiciness.

I agree that the all natural hormone free organic free range blah blah blah is better.
Much less greasy-fatty too.
Keeps the fires from raging in the grill.

It might not be piri-piri but the re-emergence of this thread has me thinking that chicken would be good tonight!
