I fired up today and went with 2 smaller chickens.  As this was only my 2nd cook on the Egg I was still kind of nervous.  image

Stabilized the Egg @ 400 and got ready to add the birds.  


Cooked for a little over an hour until done to proper temp.  No more virgin white Egg!  


SWMBO'S and my 2 daughters gave high marks. I must say I was impressed. These were easily the best and juiciest birds I have had. This cook will be repeated many times. 


Thanks for looking!

    Great cook.  Spatched chicken is a great way to show off how great the Egg can cook.  Welcome, and looking forward to more successful cooks.
    It's not a science, it's an art. And it's flawed.

    Very nice!  Just a tip...use some foil over the plate setter to catch the drippings to make clean up easier. ;)

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