      This was OK...not as impressed with it as I had hoped. I think if you were to reduce the lemon zest to just one lemon, it would be better, 'cause 2 makes the sauce bitter..or maybe add some honey or brown sugar to the sauce. IDK if I'll make this again or not. THANKS for sharing, though!

      I made this for Please Review and was not dissapointed! Everyone loved it, although my BBQ was a bit too spicy for the kids. The chicken was close to done at 1 1/2 hours, so I basted it for about 15 minutes and had a lot of sauce left over. Used dried rosemary. I haven't made whole chicken in awhile and I cooked it upside down! :oops:
