Whole Chicken on the Pit Barrel Cooker

Today I decided to cook a whole Chicken in my Pit Barrel Cooker by using the Poultry Hanging Hook. I wanted to make a Chicken because Devin from Grillaholics sent me some of his newest BBQ Rub called Herbacious Hen Rub. The Chicken was so easy to make in the PBC, and the new Herbacious Hen Rub was absolutely delicious! Let me show you how easy a Chicken is to cook on your PBC.


1 Whole Chicken

BBQ Rub of your choice (I used the Herbacious Hen Rub)

Start by rinsing off your Chicken after removing it from its packaging. Generously apply the BBQ Rub of your choice all over the Chicken. Place the Chicken on the Hanging Hook and set aside while you fire up your Pit Barrel Cooker.

Once the PBC is heated up throw in a chunk of your favorite fruit wood, I used Cherry. Hang the Chicken in your PBC and cover. Allow to cook until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees, which usually is around the 2 hour mark.

Remove and allow the Chicken to rest under foil for 10-15 minutes. Slice and enjoy!

Simply watch my video below to see how I cooked this Chicken.
