Here are two ways that we at KOL Foods like to grill our pastured, organic heritage chickens! They are both fantastic, and we recommend that you try each!
Brine whole chicken overnight in a simple brine of ⅛ cup salt ⅛ cup sugar per gallon
Butterfly or split in half
Cover with herbs and spices or bbq rub
Roast in a covered pan @ 275°F for about 20-25 minutes per pound.
Remove from pan and finish on grill basting with olive oil and bbq sauce.
Butterfly a whole chicken or split in half
Pressure cook 1 inch of water with chicken sitting above water on canning plate at 15lbs for 3+ minutes
- 3.0lbs or less - 3 minutes

Remove from pan and pat chicken dry and let it cool down for a few minutes
