Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

No Fry / Fried Chicken

RACRAC Posts: 1,497

This is my 1st post and just wanted to thank everyone who contributes to this forum. I have learned so much just looking at all the posts. I picked up my LBGE the first part of September and put it to use right away. I think I have cooked all but one meal on it. My wife came home yesterday and told me I have a problem / obsession with the egg but she doesn’t mind too much she loves the food cooked on it.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

Anyway here is my cook from last night. No fry fried chicken. Man was this good. This is how I did it.

 

Package of Louisiana Chicken Fry mix

Chicken Legs

Dizzy Pig Swamp Venom

 

Dusted legs with the Swamp Venom

Mix 5 Tbsp. of Chicken Fry in ½ cup of water. Dip chicken in batter.

Roll chicken in dry Chicken Fry until coated.

Cook indirect at 450 for about 45 minutes or about 185 internal. I did turn them about ½ into the cook.

 

If you like fried chicken like I do, I think you will enjoy these.

    Very cool.  Sort of like Shake n Bake for the egg!  Welcome aboard and thanks for sharing the recipe. 


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    Nice looking meal.   I like to take the chicken pieces and layer them between paper towels to dry the bird and place in frig over night if time allows and then do a shake 'n bake like you . The dry meat tends to get crispy around 375-400 indirect for 45 minutes or so.

    Thanks for the comments. Yes this is very crispy. I cooked about twice as much but by the time I got the camera that's all that was left.

    I forgot to add that I let it sit for 30 minute after the batter/mix is on. Not sure how to or if you can edit a post.
