    I usually just set it on the grate, whole with my favorite rub, but I can be kind of lazy.

    I've done both and prefer the beer can method or using a double vertical stand since I usually do two whole chickens each time.

    Spatchcocking is a great method for cooking chicken. Helps the bird cook evenly. No mater which method you use always cook your chicken to an IT of 165° measured either in the thigh or the breast.
