Then, transfer the chicken to your grill and place in the cooler portion of the grate, balancing the bird on the can and using the two legs as stabilizers.
  3. Cook the chicken over medium-high, indirect heat, with the grill cover on, for approximately 1¼ hours or until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F in the breast, or, until the thigh juices run “clear.”
  4. In last 15-20 minutes of cooking, baste generously with Cackalacky® Sweet Cheeerwine Sauce until well coated and caramelized. Remove from grill and let rest for 10 minutes before carving.
