3/4 cup prepared barbecue sauce
1/4 cup lemon juice

INSTRUCTIONS
Step 1: 
Preheat grill to medium-high heat. 
Step 2: 
Whisk together first three ingredients in a small bowl. 
Step 3: 
Split chicken in half through breastbone and backbone.  Rub with sauce.  When preheated, push coals to one side of grill, using tongs.  Replace grill rack.  (Or, if using a gas grill, turn off burners on one half of the grill.)  Set chicken on cool side of grill – not over coals or burners.  Close lid, open vents to maintain fire, and cook chicken about 1 ½ hours, turning occasionally, until a meat thermometer inserted in thickest part of thigh registers 180°F.
Step 4: 
Serve with Tomato-Watermelon Salad.  To prepare stir together all ingredients in a large bowl.
