Right out the box and there's an error. That should be Wilted Red Cabbage Salad, not soup. Sorry.

For most people, this time of the year means BBQ, (except for here where we seem to have nothing but cold and rain), so here's something for the Barbeque that is really easy and delish! (from Webers Big Book of Grilling)

Saffron Orange Rotisserie Chicken

Marinade:

1/4 c extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp coarsley ground white peppercorns, (I just used black)
Grated zest from two oranges
2 tsps minced garlic
1 tsp finely chopped fresh rosemary
1 tsp finely chopped fresh thyme
1/4 tsp saffron threads

1 whole chicken 4-5 lbs
1 whole orange, washed
1 bay leaf
juice from 2 oranges

kosher salt

In small bowl whisk together oil, peppercorns, zest, garlic,rosemary, thyme and saffron.
Remove and discard the neck, giblets, wing tips and any excess fat. Rinse chicken well inside and out and pat dry with paper towels. Rub the marinade all over the inside and outside of the the chicken. Place the whole orange,(I pierced mine a few times with a skewer), and bay leaf in the chicken cavity and truss with cotton string or metal skewers. Place the chicken in large resealable bag and pour in the orange juice. Press the air out of the bag and seal tightly. Turn the bag to distribute the juice, and place in a bowl and refridgerate for 8-24 hours, turning occasionally.

Remove chicken from the bag and discard the juice. Season chicken with salt. Center lengthwise on the spit, running the skewer through the orange, and let the chicken rotate over direct medium heat until juices run clear and internal temp
reaches 170F in the breast and 180F in thickest part of thigh, about 1 1/2 hours.

Turn off BBQ and remove spit from the grill. Slice the chicken from the spit onto a cutting board and cover loosely with foil and let rest for ten minutes. Remove trussing, orange and bay leaf, cut into serving pieces and serve warm.

Note: this can also be cooked over indirect heat, and a little rum can be added to the marinade to give it a little boost.
