    I let the seasonings & oil mellow for about an hour & then applied to a whole spatchcocked chicken. Grilled indirectly ~50 minutes, seared over direct for about 5. Absolutely magnificent with some grilled corn & a nice spring green salad. Thanks-- this one is definitely going to be made again soon & often!
