Mrs Lenick's first whole chicken

Well, I am cooking my first whole chicken. I'm trying to prepare myself for that turkey in a few weeks.  I started off with a smaller bird. 4lbs. I'm doing it with direct heat on a roasting rack.  I'm estimating about 60-85 minutes, but I'm not quite sure. I'm hoping it turns out well and I can post a picture of my first cook.

    How did it turn out?

  • Excellent. Juicy and delicious. I'm so grateful to everyone for the advice. Next weekend a beef roast! :)

    Glad it turned out so well for you. The pic looks great. I love crispy chicken skin!

    Looks good Mrs ... I think it better to cook indirect. What temp. did you have?
    Never eat anything passed through a window unless you're a seagull ... BGE Lg.
