Info
This recipe from The Weber Grill Deck flash card deck calls for the chicken to be marinaded for 8 hours in marinade dominated by a cup and a half of mint leaves and a dozen garlic cloves. Then the chicken is rotisserie grilled to 170 degrees in the breast meat I used maple wood chips in the smoker drawer to flavor the bird. The bird took 45 minutes longer than the recipe said, but the instant read thermometer doesn't lie. Not surprisingly the predominant flavors were mint & garlic, plus the smoke flavor. Between the marinade and the self basting that occurs during rotisserie grilling, the chicken stayed very moist..
