This easy recipe is for Old Bay Chicken using the Rotisserie on a gas grill. We will first inject the chicken with an Old Bay and Butter mixture, then finish with Old Bay Seasoning on the outside before it goes on the grill. Total cook time for this chicken was approximately 1 hour.
1 whole chicken
2 sticks butter
4 tablespoons Old Bay seasoning, separated 2 tablespoons each
Melt butter and 2 tablespoons Old Bay seasoning in the microwave. Let cool to handle.
Trim any excess fat from the chicken.
Using butcher twine, tie up the legs and wings on the chicken to prevent them from “flopping around” while on the rotisserie.
Inject the chicken with the butter and Old Bay mixture approximately on inch apart (insert the needle at a 45 degree angle).
Pour about 3 tablespoons of extra butter & Old Bay mixture over the chicken to use as a binder. Rub the butter mixture evenly over the chicken.
Place the chicken on the rotisserie spit and then on the grill.
Season the chicken with the remaining 2 tablespoons of Old Bay seasoning.
Place on the grill rotisserie.
After 45 minutes check the temperature. Cook until the thigh reaches 175 degrees F and the breast reads 165 degrees F. I removed this chicken at 1 hour.
Using hand and arm protection remove from the rotisserie. Use CAUTION as it will be extremely hot.
Let the chicken rest for 10 to 15 minutes.
Remove the butcher twine and serve!
