On this video I give the PitBarrel cooker a try at grilling. I decided to grill a whole chicken with a Maple-Bourbon BBQ Sauce that I discovered on Facebook. The sauce was awesome. I can see it going on everything from pork to steaks.


Whole chicken 1
Rub 2 Tablespoon
For the sauce
Canned tomato paste 4 Ounce
Bourbon 2 Cup (32 tbs)
Brown sugar 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Maple syrup 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Soy sauce 1/2 Cup (8 tbs)
Worcestershire sauce 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)
Molasses 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)
Red hot sauce 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)
Paprika 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)
Garlic powder 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)
Granulated onion 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)
Cumin powder 2 Tablespoon
Ground mustard 2 Tablespoon



Preheat the pit barrel to 350 degrees F.



Season the chicken with rub and place over the pit barrel. Cook for 60 – 90 minutes.

Meanwhile, prepare the sauce. In a saucepan, add in all the ingredients and cook until reduced in half.

Spread some of the sauce over the chicken and cook until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F.

Take out the chicken and let it rest for 15 minutes.



Serve the chicken with some beer.
