Many, many, many ways to go about it - here's a simple approach - I usually rinse mine, but may not be essential - anyway, pat chix dry, hit with kosher salt & pepper, let sit uncovered in fridge for a few hours, maybe let it sit out for an hour before cooking. Put on rotis - lately I've only been putting charcoal on one side - drip pan under chix is a great thing to do. I cook chix kinda hot, like 325 or more, I don't bug out if it gets to 400 but I don't get too far away from the cooker if it's in that range. My chix are usually done in 1 to 1.5 hours.
