Use the remaining apple juice mixed with water to soak aromatic wood chips, such as hickory or mesquite. Then, add the wood chips to the hot grill just before adding the chicken, adding more soaked wood chips after 1 hour.
Indirect heat is the term used for when a grilled food is cooked not directly over the heat source. The grill is always covered so that it acts like an oven. This cooking method is most commonly used when grilling larger cuts of meat, such as roasts and thick steaks.
How to Check Meat and Poultry Doneness
The easiest way to ensure that cooked meat or poultry is done is to check the internal temperature. Using an accurate food thermometer will take away the guesswork. Simply insert the thermometer into the thickest part of the meat or poultry, avoiding any bones if present. For whole poultry, insert the thermometer into the thickest part of one of the thighs, again taking care to avoid any bones.
