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!

Spatchcock Chicken

I'm going to try 2 spatchcock chickens tonight. I don't have a raised grid set-up, so should I cook indirect with plate setter? What do you think?

    Do you have a spare grid from an old weber or something? You can stick it on some beer cans to have a raised grid.

    what double said. If not, yeah, you can do indirect.

    You can do direct without going raised too.  Just run a little lower temp an rotate it now and then.

    Put something in there to raise. bricks / cans / anything to get it higher and cook direct.

  • I've got an old grid. I'll give it a go with cans or maybe bricks. Been cooking with my large BGE only about a month now and love it. Still figuring out the best set-ups. Thanks, Guys!

    Use 3 cans or 3 bricks. 3 do a much better job than  4 at bal.
