SETUP TIME: Ten minutes

Cooking Time
30 minutes and one hour
EXTRA TIME Twenty minutes
2 hours in total


  1. Five pounds of chicken
  2. Four tablespoons of canola oil
  3. One tablespoon powdered onion
  4. One teaspoon of garlic powder
  5. One-fourth cup ketchup
  6. Two teaspoons of brown sugar
  7. One teaspoon of thyme
  8. Half a teaspoon each of dried mustard, paprika, and ground ginger
  9. 1/4 tsp of allspice and savoury combined
  10. Two tsp of Kosher salt, or divided to taste


  1. Set your grill to 350–375 degrees Fahrenheit, or medium-hot.
  2. All the ingredients, excluding the chicken, should be combined into a paste in a medium-sized bowl.
  3. After rinsing, pat the chicken dry. Put one teaspoon of Kosher salt inside the chicken’s cavity.
  4. Place the rotisserie skewer inside the chicken and truss it.
  5. Put a pan of aluminium foil that is ½ full of water on the grill underneath the area where the chicken will be rotating. Throughout the cooking process, replenish the water as necessary. This will maintain the juicy, moist texture of the chicken. Additionally, it will assist in lowering oil flare-ups.
  6. Put the chicken onto the rotating dish.
    Brush the chicken all over with around one-third of the paste.
  7. To keep the temperature constant, keep the lid closed.
  8. Brush the chicken with an additional one-third of the paste after 30 minutes.
  9. After 45 more minutes, wait and brush the chicken with the leftover paste.
  10. Cook the chicken until the thigh has reached an internal temperature of 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
  11. Before cutting, take the chicken off the rotisserie and let it a good 15 to 20 minutes of rest.
