Step 1

Rinse the chicken inside and out with cold water and pat dry with paper towels.

Step 2

In a large, deep, nonreactive bowl, combine the olive oil, lemon juice, orange juice, vinegar, piri-piri sauce, paprika, cumin, 1/2 tsp. salt and 1/2 tsp. pepper. Stir in the parsley, ginger, thyme and garlic.

Step 3

Place the chicken in the bowl and turn the chicken to coat evenly. Cover and refrigerate the chicken and marinade, turning the chicken occasionally, for at least 2 hours or up to 12 hours. Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before grilling.

Step 4

Prepare an outdoor charcoal grill or an indoor Philips Smoke-Less Grill for rotisserie roasting. If using a charcoal grill, place a drip pan half full of water on the center of the fire bed.

Step 5

Remove the chicken from the marinade. Truss the chicken.

Step 6

For a charcoal grill: If using the wood chips, sprinkle about one-third of them on the coals. Secure the chicken onto the spit according to the manufacturer's instructions. Cover the grill and cook until the juices run clear when the thigh joint is pierced with a knife tip, 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Add more coals as needed and the remaining wood chips, in 2 batches.

Step 7

For a Philips Smoke-Less Grill: Secure the chicken on the spit according to the manufacturer's instructions. Cook until the juices run clear when the thigh joint is pierced with a knife tip, 1 to 1 1/2 hours.

Step 8

To test for doneness, insert an instant-read thermometer into the thickest part of the thigh, away from the bone; it should register 170°F (77°C).

Step 9

Transfer the chicken to a carving board, cover loosely with aluminum foil and let rest for 10 minutes before carving. Serves 4.
