After cleaning and trussing my two Costco chickens I prepared the wet rub. I added about 1 T oil into a small container, 2 tsp salt, 1 T black pepper, garlic powder, and 8 cloves of garlic finely chopped. I mixed this rub up really well.
I put the wet rub all over the chickens.
When the coals were ready I dumped them onto one side of the grill and placed an aluminum pan in the center with a little bit of water in it. Then I assembled the spit on the rotisserie ring. After about 20-30 min the chickens looked like this:
After about an hour I was testing the breast meat for doneness with a digital thermometer. Once the thermometer read 165 degrees they were done. This took almost 2 hours since towards the end I had a 325 degree grill. I wasn't adding any fresh coals because I really wasn't in a rush to eat.
Once the chicken was done I let it rest for about 15 minutes before carving. Fantastic juicy rotisserie chicken with a nice garlic flavor! I mean after all there was 8 cloves of garlic and garlic powder in the wet rub!!!
