That Smokin' Lemon Chicken

1 roasting chicken, 4 to 5 pounds
2 lemons, each pricked 20 times with a fork or knife
3 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Prepare a fire in a charcoal grill.

Place the lemons inside the body cavity of the chicken. Truss the chicken with cotton string, tying its legs together securely. Rub the chicken with the olive oil and season inside and out with salt and pepper.

When the coals are medium hot, push them to one side; place a drip pan in the center of the fuel bed.

Place the chicken on the cooking rack over the drip pan. Cover the grill and open all the vents.

Cook the chicken for about 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until the juices run clear when a knife is inserted between the thigh and the breast; add a handful of additional coals halfway through the cooking time.

Transfer the chicken to a carving board and cover it loosely with foil. Let it stand for 10 minutes, then carve the bird into serving pieces.

Serves 4 to 6
