  • Pre-heat the barbecue for in-direct heat, approx. 200°C.
  • In a large bowl drizzle the chicken with olive oil then add the rub ingredients. Fully coat the chicken in the rub as evenly as possible.
  • Make sure your spit is clean then skewer the chicken so the bottom prongs are firmly lodged in the thigh meat. Make sure the chicken is positioned centrally on the bar.  Slide the second prong down the spit. Locate the spikes into the breast meat pushing firmly to ensure a good grip. Tighten up the thumb screws and your chicken is ready to roast.
