Gas Grill Rotisserie
It's our nation's 4th of July celebration tomorrow, and like most holidays, this one deserves a feast — a celebration through food (and maybe beer, too). If you have a rotisserie attachment for your grill hanging around, it's time to dust it off (and if you don't have one, now might be the time to finally buy it). Because today, my friends, I'm going to show you how to cook the best darn rotisserie chicken you've ever had. Time to quit messing around.
The best things in life often take extra time and extra work. The same is true for this rotisserie chicken. It starts with a good brine, and ends with a bunch of smiling faces and sticky fingers. So go ahead, make the commitment. You're worth it.
A brine solution allows meat to retain more moisture as it cooks. That's why this chicken is so juicy that you'll have trouble taking it all the way to your plate. Instead (if you're like me) you'll just eat the meat right off the bone, and make your mark with a swop of barbecue.
It's a our nation's birthday. Eat well.
