Directions

1. Cut out the chicken back of the whole chicken. Rub the chicken generously with the jerk rub. Place on a small sheet tray transfer to the refrigerator and let stand for 2 hours.

2. Place chicken on the green egg skin side down, open faced. The egg should be pretty hot, 450°F. Watch the chicken closely so not to burn. Once you get a nice char on the chicken turn over and grill on the bone side charring fairly well.

3. At this time close the lid of the egg and the top and bottom air duct to slow down the heat. Continue to bake in the egg for 30-40 minutes. The chicken should reach an internal temperature of 170°F in the breast and 180°F in the thigh or until the juices run clear.

4. Place on a platter, garnish with limes and scallions.
