2 3-1/2 lb whole chickens;
4 tb Fresh rosemary needles -or-
2 tb -dried rosemary needles
1/2 c Olive oil
1/4 c Dry marsala wine
4 Cloves garlic; crushed
1 Lemon; juice of
Salt & pepper to taste

I developed this recipe after having dinner in San Francisco one eve
ning. Harvey Steiman, editor of Wine Spectator magazine, was cooking
for me in his backyard and he kept adding rosemary branches to the
barbecue. The result was a lamb dish that was heaven. If you do not
have fresh rosemary growing in your yard, then you can use whole
dried rosemary for this dish. However, look into growing rosemary
where you are. It will grow to be the size of a hedge in very little
time . . . and it needs little care.
Mix everything together for the marinade. Cut the chicken in half
and marinate for 2 hours.
Cook over a medium fire in your barbecue. If you are using a dome,
the fire should be about 375ø to 390ø. Cook for about 1 hour or until
the chicken is done to your taste. Baste the birds with the remaining
marinade now and then. If you are using a covered or lidded barbecue,
it will not be necessary to turn the chicken. An open barbecue means
the chicken must be turned once. If you wish to have a smoky flavor,
put some soaked wood chips or sawdust on your charcoal.
I like this with a Tomato Salad and Baked Polenta (see recipes).
