For the Chicken

For the Buffalo Dip

  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup sour cream

Step 1 Of 8
Preheat your grill to 350°F, with one burner set to medium heat and the other burner(s) off to create an indirect cooking zone .
Spatchcock the chicken using chicken shears or a sharp chef’s knife; then season both sides with barbecue seasoning.
Place the bird on the grill, skin side up, over indirect heat and close the lid. Cook until the internal temperature reaches 165°F on an instant-read thermometer , about 1 hour.
Remove the chicken from the grill and let rest at room temperature for 15 minutes. Using meat claws or two forks, shred the chicken, making sure to discard any bones or chunks of fat.
In a large bowl, combine shredded chicken with cheddar cheese, sour cream, cream cheese, hot sauce, blue cheese, garlic salt and celery seeds.
Transfer mixture to a cast-iron skillet and place the skillet on the grate(s) over indirect heat. Close the lid and cook until bubbling, about 12 minutes.
Remove from grill and garnish with chopped chives (optional).
Serve with crackers, pretzels or veggies.
