Kamado Grill Maple Herb Chicken is first brined in salt and brown sugar. Then cooked slowly and basted with a maple herb mixture.
  • 1 6 lb. chicken
  • Brine
  • 1 gallon water
  • 1 cup kosher salt
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • Maple Glaze
  • 1 cup real maple syrup
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  1. Add the salt to a large pan that will allow the water to cover the chicken. Stir the salt and water together until the salt is dissolved. Stir in the brown sugar. Add the chicken. Refrigerate for 2 hours.
  2. Pat the chicken dry with paper towels. Insert the chicken stand if using.
  3. Crush the rosemary and thyme. Mix together the glaze ingredients. Brush on the chicken.
  4. Start a fire on one half of your grill. Add your choice of smoker chips if using. When your grill gets to 250 degrees put the chicken on the side that doesn't have the fire. Cook for 1 hour.
  5. Open grill and turn chicken, brush with some of the glaze. Close and cook another hour.
  6. After that I brushed the glaze on every 30 minutes. I also moved the chicken over the heat when it was mostly burned out. It took about 3 1/2 hours to cook this chicken to 165 degrees.
