A chile-packed spice rub and mesquite smoke lend a Southwestern accent to this ultra-juicy chicken. You can use either a gas or charcoal grill, but charcoal will produce a smokier flavor.

We had hoped for more flavor. It was just OK. There are quite a few better chicken recipes on Fine Cooking than this one.
This was so easy and yummy. Make sure to follow the instruction that reads, "transfer the chicken on the can to the cooler side of the grill."I didn't and had a little fireball to deal with shortly after setting the bird out on the grill.
My husband made this Sunday and it was perfect. Used a gas grill and followed directions exactly. I might add a little more heat second time around but other than that, really delicious. Served with a tossed salad and roasted potatoes seasoned with garlic and rosemary.
