  • Phil,

    Not exactly new. It is an ancient Tuscan Italian method called Pollo al Mattone. There was a lady that swore by it on the egg several years ago. I've done it many times in a cast Iron skilet but don't really see an advantage on the egg.

  • Very similar method with a skillet in many BBQ cookbooks.
  • Yea I think Alton brown does this same method with a Cornish hen if I remember correctly
