Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We’re feeling pretty super, how about you? The big game is fast approaching, and while we love football, we love an excuse to invite people over and cook even more! You too can cook like a champion with recipes from Dr. BBQ’s NFL Gameday Cookbook: Grilled Tuna Sandwiches from Seattle and Baked Brie from New England. Who’s going to win? You’ll have to cook both to find out.

Cakebread Chicken

So, I needed to cook a chicken today, more for the carcass/bones (making stock) than the actual chicken.  So I found an opened bottle of Cakebread Chardonnay sitting in the fridge, and then saw my beer-can chicken pedestal, and got the idea.  Rubbed the chicken down heavily with butter, stuffed some pieces into the breast, and then filled the pedestal with the chardonnay and a hunk of butter.  It's sitting on the Egg (filled with cherry) at ~350.  Will let you know how it turns out.

  • wow- that is a nice chard to be beer can cooking with. I'm afraid that would have gone in the cook's gullet and I would have found something, perhaps a little "boxier" to cook with :)

  • We belong to the white wine club and since 1/2 of our house was pregnant this year, we have a stockpile.  Opened it up for guests earlier this week and it sat open in the fridge for 6 days.  It smells fantastic on the Egg.

  • ah- after 6 days, I would have cooked with it too...... but that never would have happened :D

     The inside of my refrigerator wouldn't know what a 1/2 bottle Cakebread looked like  ;)
