Difficulty Level: Novice

Courtesy of Traeger

Don’t let the simplicity of one of our most famous recipes fool you. This bad bird packs a powerful flavorful punch. Simply coat a whole chicken with Traeger’s Chicken Rub and cook for just over an hour. That’s all you’ll need to do for chicken perfection.


  • 1 (4 LB) Whole Chicken
  • TRAEGER Chicken Rub


When ready to cook, set temperature to 375℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.

Rinse and pat dry the whole chicken (remove and discard giblets, if any).

Lightly season the entire chicken with Traeger Chicken Rub.

Place the chicken on the grill grate and cook for about 1 hour and 10 minutes. Remove chicken from grill when internal temperature of breast reaches 160℉. The temperature will continue to rise after bird is removed. Allow bird to rest until internal temperature of breast reaches 165℉. Enjoy!


*Cook times will vary depending on set and ambient temperatures.
