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!

Big Green Egg headquarters has moved - come visit our new showroom and check out the museum and culinary center too! 3786 DeKalb Technology Parkway, Atlanta, GA 30340

Finally! After 5+ years I got good skin on chicken!

I did wings yesterday and cooked per recommendations posted last week- raised indirect, 350, 1 hour.imageimage

I took these pics a little too early, but suffice it to say, the skin was good! - crispy (with some see-thru portions) and not chewy.

I trimmed the wings and left uncovere in the fridge for an hour or so until I was ready to cook.  half were dusted with Wee Willies Formula #1 and the other half was with Camp Mix "Spud Fixin".  in the last 15 minutes I basted some with SBR - they all came out great!

  • As a rule, I wash and clean them pat them dry and put them back in the fridge (uncovered)  for two hours and the skin always is crispy. 

    Great looking cook!

    the usda recommends against washing it  ;) cross contamination from washing is a bigger problem then just opening the package and throwing it on the grill. goes against everything we grew up with in regards to chicken. alls the washing does is wet the skin while contaminating everything nearby

  • I agree with your point of potentially contaminating other things however I'm neurotic and would disinfect everything your way or mine. I try and buy everything from small producer and local. I try not to buy from the big processors.

    I'm not saying your wrong but if you've seen what I've seen you would wash your chicken too. I'm a farm kid, big money should stay out of food producing. Quality gets in the way of profit. 

    OK. I'll take my chit kicking now. Just please be respectful.

    ive worked in rendering plants, and the jello plant, nothing more nasty than jello
    :)>-  it took me by surprise that the usda recommends not washing it but it does help the skin crisp not to wash it

  • Ok, you know what I'm talking about. 

    I'll always wash them. When they get to the egg they are  bone dry and I get a nice crispy skin.
