    Steps

    • 3

      Set in fridge for 4-12 hours.
    • 4

      When ready to cook, set Traeger temperature to 375°F and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.

      Take chicken out of brine, do not rinse.
    • 6

      Mix together thyme, sage, salt, pepper and butter. Smear the outside of the chicken with the butter mixture. Put any of the remaining butter in the cavity of the chicken.
    • 7

      Place chicken directly on the grill grate. Cook chicken until it reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees F (about 60 mins) with an instant-read thermometer between the leg and thigh joint.

      Also check the internal temperature of the breast to ensure it registers at least 165 degrees F. Once chicken is done, let it rest for 15-20 minutes. Enjoy!
