Huli Huli Chicken?

I was going to give this a try this weekend. The recipe calls for getting my BGE up to 500 degrees. Do I need to put something between the coals and the chicken for indirect heat?

    T-47,[p]I love da kine huli-huli chicken! Huli means to turn over. Huli-huli means to turn over again. And again. NOT ROTESSERIE! Not the same thing. Sprikle some salt water on it too. Should get seared a bit. Usually plenty of flames and smoke from the open grill.[p]The man who patented the phrase huli huli chicken just passed away a couple years ago. He was in his 80s. It is a poular fund raiser item cooked by schools and sold to raise cash. Folks make it at home too.[p]Let me know how it comes out![p]Greg Kemp

    guava wood,
    so do I leave my egg open for this cook? Or close it up between the 10 minute turning intervals...this is probably a stupid question?

    T-47,[p]Are you using this recipe? I link'd it below.[p]That is similar to ours:[p]Ingredients:
    3 broken fryers, split or quartered
    1/4 cup catsup
    1/4 cup shoyu
    1/2 cup chicken broth
    1/3 cup white wine
    1/4 cup frozen pineapple juice concentrate.
    pinch of fresh or dried ginger.
    drop or two of worcestershire sauce.[p][p]Procedure:
    Mix ingredients in bowl, brush over washed chicken splits. Grill over barbecue, turning and basting with sauce until it is done (about 40 minutes). For a real hawaiian picnic lunch, eat with sticky rice, macaroni salad.
    (from this site:[p][p]It's a grilled chicken not smoked. My experience with covering it is it changes the crispyness of the skin which is part or the experience.[p]I've been told it helps to let the chicken get to room temp. not put them on too cold or the bone makes it take longer. Anxious to see how it comes out! Let me know if you have any more questions,[p]Greg[p]
