  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 6 to 7 pounds roasting chicken
  • 11 ½ ounces unsweetened apple juice
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup barbecue sauce


  1. In a bowl, combine the salt, garlic powder, pepper and cayenne; and then sprinkle over chicken.
  2. Prepare grill for indirect heat, using a deep pan. Pour the apple juice into the pan.
  3. Holding the chicken with legs pointed down, lower chicken over the can so it fills the body cavity. Place chicken on grill rack over the pan.
