Barbecue.Master's picture
  Roasting chicken 6 Pound
  Marjoram leaves 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Pepper 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Ripe peaches 3 Large, peeled, pitted and diced
  Firmly packed brown sugar 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Grated orange peel 1 Tablespoon
  Minced crystallized ginger 2 Tablespoon
  Green onion and tops 1 , chopped
  Dry white wine 3 Tablespoon
  Curry powder 3⁄4 Teaspoon

Remove chicken neck and giblets; reserve for other uses, if desired.
Discard lumps of fat.
Rinse chicken inside and out; pat dry.
Sprinkle both cavities with marjoram and pepper.
Secure skin over cavities with small metal skewers; bend wings akimbo.
Barbecue chicken by indirect heat placing chicken, breast down, on grill directly above drip pan.
Cover barbecue and adjust dampers as necessary to maintain an even heat.
Cook for 1 hour.
Meanwhile, in a 3 to 4-quart pan, combine peaches, sugar, orange juice, orange peel, ginger, onion, wine, and curry powder.
Cook over medium-high heat until bubbly; then reduce heat and boil gently, uncovered, until thickened (15 to 20 minutes).
Stir often to prevent sticking.
Turn chicken over and brush generously with peach mixture.
Continue to cook until a meat thermometer inserted in thickest part of thigh (not touching bone) registers 185°F or until meat near thighbone is no longer pink (cut to test) 30 to 45 more minutes.
Offer remaining peach mixture to spoon over individual portions
