I have some chicken breast strips marinading in some Yoshida cracked peppercorn and garlic sauce.I want to put them on some flat metal skewers I have and suspend them betweem 'on edge' firebrick.Should I cook direct (nothing under them) or cook over a pan on flat firebrick.Also plan about 300° temp. turning about 10 min.What do I need to do differently? Thanks in advance for help. Bob

    Bamabob, Since it's a 'Quick Question' and some of the more seasoned Eggers or those who have attempted this recipe may not chime in in time, I will just give you my recommendation based on my own experiences and history. If you are suspending the skewers between 'on-edge' firebricks and keeping things in the 300 degree range, I would say, go direct. That's not a ridiculous temp and the extra 4-5 inches above the grill attained by using the bricks leads me to that offering. Go with your gut instinct if in doubt, but that is my suggestion from 800 miles away...
    Good luck and enjoy (I am doing baked beans in a cast iron dutch oven on the Egg for first time; loooookin' goooood! as they say!)
    Great Saturday to ya,

  • BBQfan1, I would second that...go for it.
