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!

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.

    Try one brined next time as a comparison.  They look great.
