Wednesday Night Yardbird.

Nothing fancy here, just tasty yardbird on the Egg.  This shot just after going skin down before saucing.  Cooked at 400 direct on a raised grid.

    When you cook chicken thighs or wings direct at 400 how long before the flip?  Are they about 10 min side?  If I did not have a raised grid is it more frequent flips or lower temp or both?
    Thanks if you can help.  Just trying to learn and don't have a raised grid.

    I simply don't cook chicken enough.  I have got to change this.  Thanks for the post.

    I start skin up to help set the skin so it isn't too fragile when we go skin down after 12 minutes or so.  At 400 you do need to keep 'em moving so they don't burn.  If no raised grid go a bit lower say 365/370 watch the hot spots in the Egg as you make flame up a bit.

    Raised direct, an inch above the felt line, flip after 8 to 10, dome at 400º, skin side up to start. Always good.
