You don't need a backbone to pack a punch. This evenly cooked hen is juicy throughout and mopped with some serious Sweet & Heat sauce. You may never make chicken the same again.

Ingredients

  • OLIVE OIL

Preparation

When ready to cook, start the Traeger on Smoke with the lid open until a fire is established (4-5 minutes). Set the temperature to 375 degrees F and preheat, lid closed for 10-15 minutes. 

With a large knife or shears, cut the bird open along the backbone on both sides, through the ribs, and remove the backbone.

Once the bird is open, split the breastbone to spread the bird flat; this will allow it to roast evenly. Brush chicken with olive oil and season both sides with Traeger Chicken rub. 

Place the poultry on the Traeger, breast side up and cook for 35 to 40 minutes or until a thermometer inserted into the breast registers 160 degrees F. 

In the last few minutes of cook time, brush the chicken with BBQ sauce and cook for 2 minutes more until glaze is set.  

Remove from the grill and let rest 5 minutes before slicing. Enjoy!
