  • Fire up your Kettle grill with the Vortex loaded with charcoal. Don't start cooking until the coals are all lit and starting to ash over.
  • Rinse the chicken and pat dry.
  • Pour the seasoned flour mixture into a pie pan or shallow bowl.
  • Coat chicken completely in the mixture.
  • Transfer chicken to the grill along the edges, skin-side up.
  • Cover and cook for 40 minutes, turning the lid 90 degrees every 15 minutes.
  • Lightly brush the chicken with a little vegetable oil. Use caution as the grill will be hot.
  • Cover and cook another 5 minutes or until the chicken hits 160 F.
  • Remove and let rest and come to 165 F before serving.
