  • 1 whole chicken
  • Lemongrass paste
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 or 2 whole garlic cloves
  • Fresh jalapeño
  • AC Barbeque Lemon Stepper Rub
  • AC Barbeque MVP Rub


  • Preheat your rotisserie grill to medium-high heat.
  • Rinse the whole chicken thoroughly under cold water and pat it dry with paper towels.
  • Using a sharp knife, carefully make a few deep incisions on the chicken’s skin, creating pockets for the flavors to infuse.
  • In a small bowl, combine the lemon grass paste and the juice of the whole lemon. Mix well until it forms a smooth paste.
  • Rub the lemon grass paste all over the chicken, making sure to get it into the incisions.
  • Season the whole chicken generously with the lemon pepper stepper rub, ensuring an even coat.
  • Peel the fresh garlic cloves and slice them into thin pieces.
  • Place the sliced garlic and fresh jalapeño under the chicken’s skin, distributing them evenly.
  • Apply the MVP rub over the chicken, creating a beautiful color and adding additional flavor profiles.
  • Once the grill is preheated, secure the chicken onto the rotisserie spit and make sure it is properly balanced.
  • Place the spit onto the grill and close the lid. Allow the chicken to cook for about 1 hour, or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C).
  • Occasionally baste the chicken with the remaining lemongrass paste and any juices that accumulate in the drip pan.
  • Once cooked, carefully remove the chicken from the rotisserie and let it rest for about 10 minutes before carving.
  • Serve your delicious Lemon Stepper MVP Rotisserie Chicken with your favorite sides and enjoy!
