Reimagine the classic family cookout with a brighter, tastier approach! Serve this smoky Grilled Sweet Tea Chicken, a tall glass of refreshing iced tea, and some local summer produce for the ultimate warm weather celebration!

4
2 family-size Lipton Cold Brew tea bags
½ cup packed light brown sugar
¼ cup salt
1 small onion, thinly sliced
Juice from 1 orange
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 sprigs fresh rosemary
3 sprigs fresh thyme
2 teaspoons pepper
1 (5 lb.) whole chicken
Optional: 2 cups apple woodchips, soaked in water and loosely wrapped in foil
For the Sweet Tea Brine: Pour 8 cups COOL water over 2 tea bags. I like to do this directly in a big pot or plastic container that I can use to brine the chicken. That way I don’t have to transfer the brine...
