    RVT's Note:

    If you like chicken, this is the best way (my opinion only) to fix it. It keeps it very moist. It will looked burnt, but believe me, it is not.

      I used indirect heat with my gas grill when I made it this time. I found it to work much better as far as not burning my bird. I also put the seasoning all over the chicken and basted it with olive oil and apple juice while it was grilling. It was done in an hour and was so moist the legs came right off.
