Why bother grilling a rotisserie chicken when you can buy them already cooked at the grocery store for like 3 for $5? Okay, I exaggerate but they do sell them cheap!
But cooking on a rotisserie scratches a primal itch for this backyard cook. Watching the guest of honor rotating slowly as it bastes itself with rivulets of lusciousness brings to mind images of nomadic hunters, spinning their game over embers. Sure, I'm cooking mine on a stainless steel gas grill with an electric rotisserie - it's still a little primal. Primal-ish, maybe?
Either way, this chicken was delicious even if I did something bad and by bad I mean good. I used a little lard instead of butter to put under the skin with the dry rub. For health reasons I wouldn't do this often but I know that I'll be doing this again.
