Updated: Jan 21

Howdy, y'all! I'm Lainie Eilenberger with Key and Slate Real Estate Group, and today, I'm here to share a mouthwatering recipe for Mesquite-Grilled Whole Chicken that'll have your taste buds two-stepping with joy. But before we dive into this finger-lickin' dish, let me tell you a bit about the real estate services I provide in Lubbock and West Texas.

Mesquite-Grilled Whole Chicken Recipe


  • 1 whole chicken (about 4-5 pounds)

  • 1/4 cup olive oil

  • 2 tablespoons paprika

  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar

  • 2 teaspoons salt

  • 1 teaspoon black pepper

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1 teaspoon onion powder

  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme

  • Mesquite wood chips for smoking


1. Prep the Chicken:

  • Rinse the chicken inside and out and pat it dry with paper towels.

  • Rub olive oil all over the chicken.

2. Season the Chicken:

  • In a small bowl, mix together paprika, brown sugar, salt, black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and dried thyme.

  • Rub this seasoning mixture all over the chicken, including the inside cavity.

3. Fire up the Grill:

  • Prepare your grill for indirect cooking over medium-high heat (around 350°F).

  • Add mesquite wood chips for that authentic smoky flavor.

4. Grill the Chicken:

  • Place the chicken on the grill, breast-side up, away from the direct heat source.

  • Close the lid and let it smoke and grill for about 1.5 to 2 hours or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F in the thickest part of the thigh.

5. Rest and Serve:

  • Remove the chicken from the grill and let it rest for about 10 minutes before carving.

  • Slice, serve, and enjoy the smoky, flavorful goodness!
