This is important for providing you space to close the lid and the chicken that is in the roasting tin. If you are using a large barbecue, you will not face any major problem in placing the chicken directly on the grills or rather a tray that you will keep on the grills. The tray won’t let it topple over. Set your barbecue accordingly as it is very important for the final cooking of the chicken recipe.
Now you gave to make a rub. Collect all the ingredients that are to be used for rub and mix all. Sprinkle some black pepper for the taste. Now take the chicken and drizzle oil on it.
