Justin Wilson made a whole deep fried chicken once on his show.
I thought it was unusual that he did not season the chicken in any way. Nothing.
Just took the whole pullet* and dropped into hot oil.
Pulled out his gallon jug of wine and he was all set.

* First time I ever heard the term.

Edit: It could have been a halved chicken?

Are you asking what pullet means? It's a chicken less than one year old. Back in the day, people used to keep chickens for years for eggs. When they got too old to lay anymore, they were eaten. So there was a distinction among different ages of chickens. These days, most supermarket chickens are three to four months old, so technically they're all pullets.

Rub with a BBQ dry rub mixture of your choice (homemade or store bought). BBQ over indirect heat (with or without smoke chips) turning half way through Till cooked almost to temp. Baste with wet BBQ sauce move to direct heat turning and basting till completely cooked through and nicely browned.

The cool thing about the beer-can (or wine-butt, in my case ) chicken method is that you can do a rub and baste with sauce without having to turn a whole chicken with tongs. You can just turn the holder around to turn the chicken front to back. Much easier to handle.

I like to break it down and do pieces not a whole chicken. Very easy to handle pieces.

Well one can always turn a whole chicken into pieces, very difficult to turn pieces into a whole chicken.

I realize that. I thought she was talking about a whole chicken because that's what you asked about.
