Whole Barbecued Chicken - TastyPlanner.com
Thought the lemon would be strange on the chicken but it adds some great flavor! All the flavors work great together and I’ve made the sauce for other meats too!

2 whole chickens (3 lb. each)
2 small lemons, cut in half
1 cup KRAFT Original Barbecue Sauce
1 tsp. Italian seasoning
4 Cloves Garlic, Peeled
Heat grill for indirect grilling: Light one side of grill, leaving other side unlit. Close lid; heat grill to 350 degree F.
TRIM and discard excess fat from chickens. Squeeze lemon juice into small bowl; reserve lemon halves. Add barbecue sauce and seasoning to juice; mix well. Place 2 each lemon halves and garlic cloves inside each chicken cavity.
Place chickens, breast-sides up, on grate over unlit area; cover. Grill 1-1/2 to 2 hours or until chicken is done (165 degrees F), turning and brushing occasionally with sauce for the last 20 min. Remove and discard lemon halves and garlic from chickens before serving.
KRAFT KITCHEN TIPS:
Garnish with additional lemons and roasted garlic. Lemon wedges can be grilled for 5 min. alongside chicken to bring out their sweetness.
Substitute 1 large chicken (4 to 5 lb.) for the smaller chickens. Grill 1-3/4 to 2 hours or until chicken is done (165 degrees F). Makes 10 servings.
HOW TO GRILL ON A CHARCOAL GRILL:
Carefully arrange hot coals evenly around side of charcoal grate. Place drip pan in center of grate; fill with 1 cup water. Place cooking grate over coals. Place chicken on grate centered over drip pan. Cover grill with lid. Grill as directed.
