Slo Chicken

I tried a friend's method of cooking Chicken low and slow, It came out good!
I Brushed the 6.5lb chicken with EVOO and dusted with STT. set it in the Stoneware vertical roaster, 250, direct and left it for 5 hours. When I checked at 5, the thigh was in the 170's so I cranked it to 350 for another half-hour to try to crisp up the skin while the cook finished. [p]Meat was delicious and moist ( even my critical wife liked it) and the skin was better, but not crispy enough. I could eat the skin off this bird (which I usually can't on my egged chickens), but it was still tough. Next time I will try to crank it up earlier.[p]Those foiled things are (2) huge sweet potatoes. I left them on the whole time and then some with more heat at the end. I didn't cook them long enough but they were good enough.


  • Flashback Bob,
    We cook chicken probably 4 days a week at the store to give to customers and sometimes it sits there for HOURS and I've notice that you can really overcook it and it stays moist AND the skin gets crispier when you cook it to a higher internal temp. I've been experimenting and I now take the breast to 175 or 180 with no loss of juices etc. .. I really like my chicken falling off the bone so this is perfect for my taste (longer cooked)

    I take my leg quarters to 190-200 and they are as moist as you could want. -RP

    I usually do a similar thing with wings.[p]Slow smoke them at around 220 for several hours, then sauce them and cook direct at about 600 degrees for just a few minutes to crisp the skin and carmalize the sauce.[p]Also like to do bone in, skin on, breasts the same way.[p]They stay very moist and flavorful inside with a crispy exterior.[p]This week I was planning to try the same thing with a whole, beer can chicken or two.

    Flashback Bob,
    foiled potatoes? are you daft?[p]by the way. the patriots beat the redskins by 98 points or something, and i think the boston baseball team (what are they called again) did well tonight also.[p]i remember when a brown paper bag was the standard headwear or the boston sports fan. enjoy it, as it may be brief!

    Flashback Bob,
    You might try air drying the bird for 24 hours in the fridge before Eggen it. I also coat with EVOO or butter after drying.[p]Regards,
