The one I am talking about is about as small and inexpensive as it gets--about $30. You don't HAVE to do 4, but it is just as convenient to do a couple (1,2,3,4) as it is to do one. It is the same amount of heat. I believe it will take the same amount of charcoal to cook 1 chicken in a Weber as this.
Costco and Sam's sell their chickens 2 to a package, so doing 2 and freezing one is a good thing. You have a meal made ahead.
But,, I really don't mind if you do just one.
