I'm not the first... Or the last

To spatchcock some chickens, but I'm glad I did! We may be the first to have his and her chickens though, with his and her drinks...

Usually steam the green beans, but decided to toss them in some olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic and them throw them in a cast iron pan in the egg

Took longer than expected, but worth the wait. Will try direct cook next time.

    Green beans and spatch get eaten a few times a week at my house. Yum
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.

    Those look great.  Definitely try direct.  I found it takes right at 1 hour with the egg raised direct at 375.  The green beans is a great idea.  I'll have to try that.

    Looks fantastic, how are you raising your cast iron grid above your regular grid?
    I raise my kids, cook and golf.  When work gets in the way I'm pissed, I'm pissed off 48 weeks a year.

    For now, Just with firebricks. Ordered one of those grid extenders through the group buy. Would ordinarily put the cast iron on the bottom, but green beans were a last minute decision

    Great cook!
    Your garden looks just like mine! Whatcha growing? We just sold our house so hope the new owners like squash and hot peppers. Didn't intend on leaving, house wasn't even on market, got an offer we couldn't refuse.

    @mrcookingnurse congrats in the house sale! Have a bunch of herbs and tomatoes, some sweet and hot peppers, eggplant, lettuce, strawberries and raspberries in the garden. Hoping the 2nd year will be better than the first! Decided to go with raised beds this year because the soil here is all clay.

    great work - everytime I go to the grocery store fresh green beans are everywhere.  Three times this week like @travistrick.....did you use different rubs for his and hers?

    My husband used Raging River and I used a beer can chicken rub we picked up yesterday at our town festival. I won.

    Veggies in the CI skillet are aways a winner. Cauliflower is outstanding done this way, as is broccoli. Whole okra tossed with some Cajun seasoning and oil is the only way to eat okra, unless you're going through the trouble of frying it.

    For sure! My husband makes chicken salad for his lunch every week so he used the leftovers and said it was the best chicken salad yet!
