Whole Rabbit Grilled

My first post, yay!
I made this rabbit in a white wine and mustard slather. Cooked it at 300º for about 1.5 hours over lump charcoal and grape vines. I used the plate setter with the feet up and placed the rabbit on the grates. Maybe the best rabbit I have ever put in my mouth!

    Can you give a bit more detail on the seasonings used.  I like rabbit alot and my butcher usually has whole rabbits.  I would be interested in roasting a whole one.

    French mustard wine recipe was:

    Dijon mustard

    White wine

    Olive oil

    Salt pepper

    Shallots

    Garlic

     

    I did not measure anything; I just mixed until it tasted
    good. Then I coated the rabbit in the sauce, wrapped it in saran wrap while I
    got the Egg going.  Once the Egg was good
    to go I reapplied the remaining sauce and tossed it on the grill.

     

    I cooked it to 160º internal temp but probably should have
    pulled it off at 150-155º

    I bought it and it was about 2 lbs. Another thing I forgot to mention was that I made a simple poultry brine and soaked it over night. I promise my next post will have a more structured format to present these details without being prodded. rookie mistake.
