    Kitten Stirfry's Note:

    This recipe changes a little every time I prepare it, but the foundation has been well received so far. I use a "McCormick" rosemary / garlic rub and a small bottle of "Jim Beam" bourbon as the rub. I like to use 2 whole chickens, and cook them on a "Cabelas" brand dual beer butt chicken stand. Also important, I usually drink heavily when I am making this great outdoor dish, so ratios tend to vary according to my mood at the time of preparation. I would recommend you create this dish to your taste preferences. Enjoy.
