Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

French Bread and Easy Shmeezy Chicken

Hey all,[p]I decided to not do a big production on the egg last night so I simply rinsed the chicken (5 pound roaster) and put a nice rub on it over olive oil. I got the egg up to about 300 degrees and threw the bird on over a couple of firebricks sitting on a vertical roaster. In about 3 hours we had a chicken that was moist and tender and very tasty. With the egg still hot, I decided to throw on a couple of loaves of French Bread but with a bit of a twist. I got the egg to about 400 and stabilized it with my indirect setup on it. I had a couple of loaves of bread already in the refrigerator I had made the night before, had them fermenting in the fridge overnight to develop flavor. I took them out about an hour before the chicken was done to finish the rise, they were ready when the chicken came out. I put them in for about 35 minutes each and they came out beautifully, crisp crust, nice light airy inside. I wish the timing had worked out that we could have eaten them with the chicken but no such luck. Time to look at another egg? hehehehe[p]Anyway, the twist on the bread was that I put about 2 tablespoons of dried minced garlic and about 2 tablespoons of dried minced onions and a tablespoon of italian seasoning in the dough. Not TRUE french bread but it did add a real nice twist to it. One loaf is gone, the other is being saved for this evening to make sammiches with the chicken. This is a SIMPLE French bread recipe if anyone is interested, great results with little to no work.[p]We ate some fresh steamed broccoli from out of the garden, that was awesome. Didn't put a big load of melted cheese like Gfw but it was still good. Overall a successful evening on the egg, good to be back. I have enough lump for hopefully the rest of the summer now so I won't be stopped by that again.[p]Troy
