Slow Roasted Chicken & Strawberry Cobbler

It's Sunday. I didn't intend to cook today. But when my kitchen calls, I have a hard time ignoring.

Geez, I just realized this is the third day in a row that I've blogged.

I've been wanting to try cooking a whole chicken on the grill. You know, the method where you put a whole bird over a can of something (Dr. Pepper, Coke, beer), so I Googled and found a few ideas. I decided to use Dr. Pepper with a little fresh rosemary since I really love rosemary and I happen to have some growing in my tiny herb garden outside my kitchen. I used a prepared rub (one that we like that is actually a pork rub) and let it sit in the frig for about an hour. Then I inverted this rather large roasting chicken over the opened can of Dr. P (with several sprigs of rosemary dropped in) and hubby cooked it on the grill for a little over an hour. So now it's sitting in my kitchen in all its yummy glory, tempting me, and testing my patience while we wait for Taylor to get home from work. It's smells divine.

While the chicken was on the grill I made a large dish of baked beans and a strawberry cobbler. Both of these dishes rate a 10 on hubby's food perfection scale. Both are simple recipes that I make regularly.

Taylor's home so it's time to eat. Wonder if there will be any leftovers?
