1 ~6-lb chicken (don't go too big, you want to be able to close the grill!)
1 open 12 oz can Coke
juice and zest of one orange
1 1/2 tablespoons lemon pepper seasoning
1 tablespoon Aleppo pepper
1 tablespoon dehydrated minced onion
1 teaspoon dried thyme
coarse kosher or sea salt
Place a foil bowl (buy a round foil tin or fashion one out of regular foil) under the center of the rack. Surround with coals. Place applewood chips in a foil packet (poke holes in it) or in a smoker box. Prep grill. Rub the chicken down with the juice and sprinkle with spices and zest. Place the can of soda in a can chicken roaster. Place the chicken over the cooker. Place on the grill, over the foil bowl.
Cover and cook until full cooked through, adding coals as needed to keep the heat constant. It should take about 1-1/2 hrs.
